Publications & Research

Jamie Gloor is an enthusiastic scholar, educator, and speaker. Her research interests broadly include leadership, social interactions, communication, and decision-making, with a focus on aspects of employee diversity (e.g., gender, parenthood, age, nationality, language, and body weight). Using a multidisciplinary approach, she seeks to understand bias and discrimination, but most importantly, to create causal, evidence-based claims to reduce social-, economic-, and health-based inequalities, improve decision-making efficiency and sustainability. She is eager to inform science and policy broadly in the areas of diversity, leadership, and work-family research, and keen on collaborations, conference symposia, and invited lectures to continue conversations, encourage research, and ultimately: action.
