Expertise: Workplace discrimination, workplace diversity, diversity programs, gender discrimination

Dr. Eden King joined the faculty of the Industrial-Organizational Psychology program at George Mason University after earning her Ph.D. from Rice University in 2006. Her research focuses on how businesses can manage equitable and diverse organizations.

Some of her recent work has involved studies on how pregnant women are discriminated against when applying for jobs; and how diversity in the workplace suffers when the economy is bad.

Her research, which has appeared in outlets such as the Journal of Applied Psychology, Human Resource Management, Perspectives of IO Psychology, and Group and Organization Management, addresses three primary themes: 1) discrimination and barriers to work-life balance in organizations, 2) consequences of such challenges for its targets and their workplaces, and 3) individual and organizational strategies for reducing discrimination and increasing support for families.

In addition to her academic positions, Dr. King has consulted on projects related to diversity training programs and has worked as a trial consultant. She is currently on the editorial board of the Journal of Management and the Journal of Business and Psychology.
