Erin Reid (Ph.D. Harvard University) studies the links between gender inequality, identity and how we design our work. One line of research examines these issues in relation to time-greedy work, a widespread workplace phenomenon. A new line of research explores these issues for workers in the gig economy. She has been recognized as one of the world’s top 40 business school professors under the age of 40, listed as a Radar Thinker by Thinkers50, and named a Change Agent by Canadian Business. Erin’s research has been published in leading academic journals and management outlets such as Administrative Science Quarterly, Organization Science, Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Strategic Management Journal, and Harvard Business Review. Her work is funded by SSHRC and has been profiled in media such as the New York Times, Globe and Mail, The Atlantic and Fast Company. She serves on the editorial boards of Organization Science, Human Relations, Journal of Business Psychology, and is an incoming member of Academy of Management Journal’s editorial board.
