My Approach to Ethical Systems:
Broadly, I am interested in understanding when and why tensions exist between ethical values and career gains in terms of money and social status. I investigate the circumstances under which these tensions emerge and explore how people resolve them. To do so, I often focus on gender and hierarchical position and how those constructs shape people’s identities. I seek to understand how hierarchical position and gender link to various types of ethical behavior at work, such as deception in negotiation and principled dissent. I have found that both gender and rank inform how people define themselves, sometimes to the detriment of their ethical decision-making.
