Dr. Lau-DiCicco’s passion for research is driven by her aspiration to create an inclusive and engaging environment for all workers. To achieve this goal, her research situates at the intersection of leadership and diversity. Her leadership research focuses on understanding the unfolding process of followership, learning how leaders can effectively manage diverse teams, and identifying ways to enhance women’s representation in leadership. In addition to leadership, she studies gender and diversity through an allyship lens. This stream of research focuses on understanding what psychological factors motivate men to be part of the feminist movement and how their involvement best suits the needs of current issues. Dr. Lau-DiCicco holds a PhD and a MA degree in Organizational Behavior from Clermont Graduate University (CGU) and a BA degree from the University of Kansas (KU). During her time at CGU, she served as a research consultant for Accenture Talent Innovation Lab for which she provided consultation on research in areas spanning Strategy, Recruitment, and Talent Management.
