PhD Researcher in Psychology (ESRC +3)
College of Environmental and Life Sciences, University of Exeter

Research topic: Gender Equality in the Workplace
I am doing research on gender equality in the workplace, specifically I am investigating how to make the workplace a more even playing field for men and women. Unlike a lot of previous research I am not looking at what women can do to achieve this, but am focusing on men’s contribution, as these are the main power holders in the society at the moment which makes their contribution extremely valuable. This research is important as previous results have shown that not only women, but also men, and even their children, benefit from a more egalitarian society.
