Joyce is a PhD candidate of Organizational Behaviour and Human Resource Management at the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto. She obtained her Honours Bachelors of Science with high distinction in Psychology from the University of Toronto. Broadly, her research focuses on the role of social perception and judgment in organizations at the recruitment and hiring stage, as it relates to gender. Her research has examined how female job seekers “manage gender” in job applications to attempt to overcome anticipated gender biases in personnel selection for male-dominated jobs, and the consequences of those strategies for job attainment.
Joyce’s current line of work investigates how organizations can make structural changes to their decision-making processes to create more gender diverse talent pools. Specifically, she is interested in harnessing behavioural insights to “nudge” selection processes to be less biased.
