Professor Georgeac is interested in how people respond to organizations’ messages about diversity. In one program of research, she investigates the effects of organizations’ justifications for why they value diversity on underrepresented group members and team managers. In another stream of her research, she examines how people respond to information reflecting organizations’ achievements in increasing women’s representation in top leadership. Her research across these two streams offers novel insights into how organizations’ efforts to support diversity may paradoxically prevent them from advancing toward their diversity goals.
Oriane Georgeac’s research has been published in top journals in psychology and management, including the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, and Social Psychological and Personality Science. Her work has also won multiple awards, and has been covered by a variety of media outlets, including Harvard Business Review, Forbes, The Economist, The Telegraph, and The Hill.
Professor Georgeac currently teaches the “Managing Groups and Teams” and “Global Virtual Teams” courses in the MBA program at Yale School of Management.
