Hi. I'm Jessica Kirk, an Assistant Professor of Management in the Fogelman College of Business & Economics at the University of Memphis. I recently completed my Ph.D. at the Leeds School of Business at the University of Colorado-Boulder where I studied organizational behavior and entrepreneurship.
My research focuses on how stereotyping leads to mistreatment and biased perceptions of women, creating challenges in their pursuit of success. I explore these issues in different contexts including leaders in organizations and women on new venture teams.
Please take a look around my website! It's still in development, so excuse the dust :) My hope is for this to be a place where I share my passion for compelling ideas, intelligent discussion, and beautiful places.
