Professor of Management and Organizations Corinne Bendersky is an expert in workplace conflict, status, justice, and diversity and inclusion in teams and organizations. Bendersky’s research contributes to both academic knowledge and organizational practice.
In recent projects, Bendersky has developed interventions to reduce the gender bias experienced by women who work in extremely male-dominated professions, like the U.S. fire service. She has advanced methods to measure the effects of different configurations of conflicts expressed within teams. She also has been using machine learning techniques to study conflict expressions in Wikipedia editorial disputes, and how working women have been represented in the news media since the passage of the Equal Pay Act in 1963 through the #MeToo movement in 2018.
Bendersky teaches in UCLA Anderson’s full-time and fully employed MBA programs, and in many of its executive education programs. As faculty director of the UCLA human resources roundtable known as HARRT, Bendersky engages with a mix of academic, consultant and practitioner knowledge of cutting-edge human resources topics with the roughly 50 corporate HR executives who are members. As founder of Morpho Leadership Development, she consults with corporate and public service agency executives, particularly on conflict management and diversity and inclusion.
