Biographical Information

Ph.D., University of Michigan, 2012

Dana Kabat-Farr's research focuses on workplace social experiences - both negative (incivility, harassment) and positive (citizenship) - and ways in which those experiences affect employee and organizational wellbeing. She has examined (1) relationships between workgroup "tokenism" and gender harassment; (2) workplace incivility as covert discrimination against women and people of color, and (3) positive and negative social experiences that influence employees' ability to thrive at work. Her work has been published in the Journal of Management, Law and Human Behavior, and an edited chapter in a recent book entitled "Gender and the Dysfunctional Workplace".
