Work-Family, Diversity, & Identity Lab

In the WFD&I lab, we are interested in studying work-family, diversity, identity, and leadership issues in organizational settings. Our current research focuses on topics such as the implementation of employee-friendly employment practices in response to external events, identity management in the workplace, the extent to which leader behaviors and follower responses are contingent on race/gender, and the interface between employees’ work and non-work lives.


WFD&I Scholars, affiliated with the Diversity, Racial Equity, & Inclusion Group, possess research experience in work-family interface, leadership, diversity, identity, and research methods.
