Andrea G. Dittmann completed her PhD in management & organizations at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management in 2020. Andrea’s primary research focus is on how the social contexts in which people grow up continue to shape the obstacles and strengths that they face in professional workplaces. Her work has been published in top academic outlets, including the Journal of Personality & Social Psychology and Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Most recently, she has been investigating how the experience of the COVID-19 pandemic has affected people from lower (vs. higher) social class contexts differently across a number of important life domains, including work, social relationships and mental health.
