Erin Reid studies gender inequality and identity dynamics in work settings. She is especially interested in how men and women cope with time-greedy work, and the implications of their coping mechanisms for their own lives as well as the organizations for which they work. She takes a sociological perspective in her research and uses both qualitative and quantitative methods. Her research has been published or is forthcoming in Organization Science, Academy of Management Review, Strategic Management Journal, Journal of Business Ethics, the Academy of Management Best Paper Proceedings, and has received multiple awards.
Prior to her academic career, Erin worked for a small social policy research company, on education and labor market policy for Canadian government, and as a dietary aide for a nursing home.
