Does Location Matter? Everyday Gender Discrimination in Remote and Onsite Work

Mentor: Dr. Laura Doering

Ambiguous Bias


Project Description

Existing research suggests that minor discriminatory slights may be more common for women when the work remotely, whereas other research suggest such “everyday gender discrimination” is more common when women work onsite. In this study, we use survey data to examine the overall incidence of everyday gender discrimination in each setting, and then consider for which types of women such experiences are more common in each location. This is primarily a survey based study, but also includes analysis of qualitative data. As a member of the research team, you will learn about research that integrates qualitative and quantitative data to link individual experiences with organization-level outcomes. You will advance the project by conducting literature reviews and analyzing qualitative or quantitative data (depending on your interest).

Does this project require the SROP Student to be in-person or remote? Remote

Mentorship Statement

Mentoring students is one the great joys of my job. I love supporting students in developing their research skills and helping to launch them on the exciting paths they pursue post-graduation. I have been fortunate to work with a team of excellent research assistants in the past. Many of my RAs have gone on to graduate school or to conduct applied research in organizations. I look forward to working with a student in the SROP program as he or she learns about the research process and considers how it might shape their future.
