Chan’s thesis focuses on bias interrupters and helping women obtain leader development opportunities. She is currently working with Dr. Reichard on a meta-analysis on ethical leadership and gender. Emily is also working on a research project that examines how leadership style and parental status affect perceptions of candidate hireability. Collaborating with other scholars, she created a theoretical model of responsible leadership for a book chapter. Her senior thesis at UCLA examined factors that influence women’s interest in STEM careers. She has also conducted applied projects with various organizations examining team dynamics, training, feedback, and employee motivation.
