Ezgi is a 5th year PhD candidate in London Business School’s Organisational Behaviour PhD Programme. Ezgi’s broader theme of research aims to address the interconnected nature of gender inequality within home and work domains. For instance, in one stream of research Ezgi studies whether and how social roles are implicated in the way women and men construct their sense of self-worth and value. In another program of research, Ezgi studies how malleability beliefs about gender roles, or gender role mindsets, shape U.S. American men’s feelings toward, and support for, paid family leave policies. Prior to her PhD studies, Ezgi earned a Master’s degree in Industrial/Organizational (I/O) Psychology at Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis (IUPUI).
Julia Langdon is a sixth-year PhD student in Organizational Behavior at London Business School. She currently investigates 1) how to help organizations stop unethical behaviour by identifying the complex psychological contortions people use to justify unethical behaviour including using moral mindsets to promote ethical behaviour, and 2) how moral messaging about an organization’s support for disabled applicants can improve disabled people’s experience at work. She holds a Master’s in Cognitive and Decision Science from University College London.
Ee Hwee Lau
Ee Hwee is a 3rd year PhD student in the London Business School’s Organisational Behaviour PhD Programme. Her research interests focus on mindsets, status, and decision-making. In one stream of research, she investigates how people think about the resources that they have access to but can be concealed from others and have helped them along their path to success. In another stream of research, she examines whether the universal mindset (i.e., the belief that nearly everyone has high leadership potential) would debias people's persistent preference for more attractive candidates.
Oriane 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.
Her 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.
