Virginia E. Schein, Professor Emerita of Management and Psychology

My groundbreaking research on gender stereotyping and requisite management characteristics spans four decades and five continents. I continue to lecture worldwide on gender and leadership, most recently in the UK, France, Turkey and Poland. I am active at the United Nations in New York, serving as an NGO representative for the Centre for Socio-Eco-Nomic Development (CSEND) in Geneva. In 2018 I represented CSEND at the UN’s Commission on the Status of Women. I also volunteer at a nonprofit in Philadelphia that helps low income women and have been a pro bono consultant to several arts organizations in New York and Philadelphia.
