Kelly Dray’s program of research broadly focuses on remediating workplace discrimination. She is particularly interested in gender, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, and other forms of diversity within organizations and how these various stigmatized identities relate to occupational health. She has conducted various projects that examine the development of allies in the workplace, the best ways to confront discrimination in the workplace, workplace diversity and inclusion among women (particularly in STEM fields), and the specific mistreatment of individuals with hidden stigmas, such as sexual orientation. She is excited to be a member of the industrial/organizational psychology doctoral program so that she can build a body of research aimed at reducing unfair discriminatory treatment within and outside of the workplace. Kelly is currently a graduate research assistant for the Revolutionizing the Diversity of Engineering (REDO-E) grant funded by the National Science Foundation.
