Andrea C. Vial
Andrea Vial is a doctoral candidate in social psychology working with Jack Dovidio and Victoria Brescoll (Yale School of Management). Andrea's research focuses on the impact of gender identity, stereotyping, and bias on organizational behavior. She takes an interdisciplinary approach that combines basic experimental methods and classic social psychological theory with more applied organizational approaches to understand the many ways that gender can impact workplace relations and behaviors and career outcomes. For example, Andrea's empirical and theoretical work has focused on (1) the experiences of women in high-power authority roles; (2) the overlap between gender stereotypes and leader role expectations; (3) gender in-group favoritism in leader-follower relations; and (4) the accommodation of gender-based third-party prejudice in hiring selections. Before Yale, Andrea received her BA in psychology with a minor in sociology from Hunter College (CUNY).
