Adriana Germano, an assistant professor of organizational behavior, has won the SAGE Emerging Scholar Award, presented by the Society for Personality and Social Psychology in collaboration with SAGE Publications.
The award recognizes “outstanding achievements by early-career PhD scholars in social and personality psychology, including contributions to teaching, research, or service to the field.”
Germano joined Yale SOM’s faculty in 2022, after earning her PhD from the University of Washington and serving as a post-doctoral research scholar at Columbia Business School.
Her research investigates the cultural foundations of gender and racial inequity within organizations and society. Using experimental methods and observational datasets, she conducts rigorous research aimed at understanding how default features of our cultural environments (e.g., the well-regarded U.S. value of individualism) contribute to inequity.
