As a first-generation college student, pursuing an academic career feels like a privilege to examine questions that excite me. It also imbues a personal responsibility to the principles of representation, diversity, and inclusion. I live this commitment to diversity and inclusive excellence in the following ways:
A significant portion of my academic endeavor focuses on workplace diversity and inclusion by generating novel theoretical insights with important implications for organizations and for the practice of management.
Through valuing and respecting diversity, my personal experiences informed a teaching philosophy that promotes individual authenticity, and a safe climate that benefits all students’ learning among different perspectives and backgrounds.
I continue to advocate for change through my role within organizations such as the KPMG PhD Project. This organization helps promote a more diverse pipeline through mentoring and advocacy.
