Victoria Brescoll

School of Mangement

Victoria Brescoll’s research focuses on the impact of stereotypes on individuals’ status and power within organizations, particularly for individuals who violate gender stereotypes. Her study “Can an Angry Woman Get Ahead? Gender, Status Conferral, and Workplace Emotion Expression,” published in Psychological Science, concluded that people reward men who get angry but view angry women as incompetent and unworthy of status and power in the workplace. The research was widely reported on in the popular press including the New York Times, Business Week, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, National Public Radio, and U.S. News & World Report.

Additionally, Professor Brescoll examines how having power may differentially affect men and women’s behavior at work. In 2012, she published a paper in Administrative Science Quarterly, “Who Takes the Floor and Why: Gender, Power, and Volubility in Organizations,” showing that, for men, there is a strong relationship between having power and talking a lot in organizational settings (e.g., the United States Senate), but for women, there is no such relationship. Her other research interests include the cultural origins of stereotypes (e.g. the media), corporate social responsibility, and framing messages to improve health policy.

She received her MS, MPhil, and PhD in social psychology from Yale University where she was supported by a graduate research fellowship from the National Science Foundation. She completed her BA in psychology from the University of Michigan. In 2004, Professor Brescoll worked in the office of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton under a Congressional Fellowship.
