Research AreasGender Inequality
Elizabeth L. Campbell is an Assistant Professor of Management who studies gender inequality in the workplace. Campbell combines quantitative and qualitative research methods to investigate the psychological underpinnings of processes that impact men's and women's career advancement, such as the provision of career support (sponsorship and mentorship), promotion processes, and hiring decisions. She uses both experimental and field-based methods to understand how micro-level psychological processes aggregate to produce macro-level patterns in organizations and labor markets.
Campbell received her Ph.D. and M.Sc. in Organizational Behavior and Theory from Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University. While at Tepper, her dissertation work was recognized with several awards, including the Herb Simon Doctoral Dissertation Award, Gerald Salancik Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship Award, and Paul Goodman Endowed Doctoral Dissertation Award. Campbell was also awarded Carnegie Mellon University’s Henry J. Galliot Presidential Fellowship. Before joining Tepper, Campbell worked in market research in Washington D.C. and received her B.A. in Psychology from Wellesley College.
