Kelly P. Gabriel is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Management at the GW School of Business. Her research aims to understand how organizations can both build equitable workplaces and promote positive psychological experiences for marginalized employee populations. She examines this through two primary research streams: diversity, equity, and inclusion (stigmatized identities, intersectionality, work-life interface) and decent work (improving low-wage work, equitable business practices, thriving). She has published peer-reviewed articles in Journal of International Business Studies, Business & Society, Business Horizons, and Management Research, and has presented work at the meetings of the Academy of Management and Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology.
