Examples of research that would be related to DEI includes but is not limited to:

  • Scholarship at the individual, team, group, organizational, and/or national level investigating one or more ways to conceptualize diversity (e.g., race, ethnicity, gender identity, sex, sexual orientation, social economic status, power differentials, disability status, neurodiversity).
  • Research related to equity or the differential experience of salient outcomes within organizations and/or other societal structures based on group membership.
  • Scholarship related to how individuals perceive feeling included, treated with respect, and/or belongingness within their teams, groups, organizations, and/or other societal structures.
