Sonya Mishra is an assistant professor of management at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth. Her research investigates how diversity operates within various forms of hierarchy (e.g., power, status) to shape social perceptions and, ultimately, the workplace outcomes of underrepresented individuals. Her research has been published in outlets such as Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes and the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology. Drawing on her expertise in organizational diversity, Mishra is responsible for designing and teaching the MBA elective Leading Diverse Organizations. In addition to research and teaching, Mishra consults with global organizations that are committed to addressing issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Prior to obtaining her PhD from University of California’s Haas School of Business, Mishra studied finance at Georgetown University and worked in investment banking.
