Description

Shelley J. Correll is professor of sociology and organizational behavior at Stanford University, where she directs the Stanford VMware Women’s Leadership Innovation Lab. Her expertise is in the areas of gender, workplace dynamics and organizational culture. Correll is committed to uncovering and removing the biases and barriers that limit women’s full participation in society. Her research on the “motherhood penalty” demonstrates how motherhood influences the workplace evaluations, pay and job opportunities of mothers. Her current research uncovers how gender stereotypes and organizational practices limit the advancement and retention of women in technical jobs. With her colleagues, Correll is currently designing and evaluating “small wins” interventions to increase diversity and inclusion outcomes in modern workplaces. She frequently teaches in Executive Education at Stanford Graduate School of Business, including in the first LGBTQ executive education program offered by a top business school. She is co-director of the Program for Women Leaders in Major League Baseball at Stanford GSB.
