February 16, 2021

Toronto – Joyce He, a Ph.D. candidate in the Organizational Behavior and Human Resource Management area at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management, has received a graduate research award from the Society for Personality and Social Psychology.

The highly competitive Jenessa Shapiro Graduate Research Award recognizes excellent graduate students from underrepresented backgrounds. The award includes generous funding to be used toward the graduate students' research.   

He’s research takes a social cognitive lens to investigate mechanisms that perpetuate gender inequality, and transform those insights into behaviorally-informed systemic interventions to alleviate inequality. She has accepted a tenure-track assistant professor position at the UCLA Anderson School of Management starting in July. 

The Rotman School of Management is part of the University of Toronto, a global centre of research and teaching excellence at the heart of Canada’s commercial capital. Rotman is a catalyst for transformative learning, insights, and public engagement, bringing together diverse views and initiatives around a defining purpose: to create value for business and society.
