Current Research Activities

I have been trying to identify factors that prohibit or enhance diversity and inclusion in the workplace.   I have been trying to identify what strategies underrepresented minorities could use to reduce a potential bias against them.  

Research Connections to Current Events

Immigrants face considerable disadvantages in the workplace,  mainly because they speak English with an accent.  I examine what strategy they could use to reduce a potential bias against them.  The identification of such strategy could lead to less bias against them.

Personal Connections to Research

Because I am an immigrant myself, it is important to understand how organizations and immigrants could work together to benefit each other.
