Dr. Aneeta Rattan is Assistant Professor in Organisational Behaviour at London Business School. Dr. Rattan received her BA at Columbia University and then completed her PhD and postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford University. Her research on diversity in organizations focuses on mindsets and intergroup relations (stereotyping, prejudice, and inequity). In one program of research, she studies mindsets that promote belonging, commitment, and achievement among minorities and women in domains where they are underrepresented and negatively stereotyped. In another program of research, she investigates how mindsets shape individuals’, organizations’, and societies’ ability to foster positive interactions among diverse group members (across gender, race/ethnicity, and sexual orientation status), particularly after individuals express explicit sexism or bias.
Dr. Rattan’s research has been published in the top journals in social psychology and organizational behavior, and she received the Rising Star Award from the Association of Psychological Science. The MBA2017 class awarded Dr. Rattan the Core Teaching Award. Dr Rattan has also been a contributor to major media outlets such as the New York Times and National Public Radio, and her work has been featured in news outlets such as the Financial Times, Harvard Business Review, Wall Street Journal, Forbes Magazine, Huffington Post, and Slate Magazine.
