Assistant Professor
Human Resource Studies

Overview

Devon Proudfoot is an Assistant Professor of Human Resource Studies in the ILR School at Cornell University. Her research examines stereotyping and inequality, creativity judgments, and motivational underpinnings of organizational attitudes and behavior. She is particularly interested in understanding how organizational contexts, cultures, and practices may create biases in evaluations of members of historically underrepresented groups, such as women and racial/ethnic minorities, and the impact of these biases on minorities’ access to organizational resources and rewards. Her work has been published in journals such as Psychological Science, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, and Research in Organizational Behavior.

Prior to joining the faculty at Cornell, Devon completed her PhD in Management and Organizations at Duke University. She also holds a MSc In Social Psychology from the London School of Economics and Political Science and a BA in Psychology from McGill University.
