Kenan Fellow Angelica Leigh: The Influence of Mega-Threats on Individuals at Work
Kenan Institute Distinguished Fellow Angelica Leigh, assistant professor of management and organizations at Duke University Fuqua School of Business, discussed the effect of societal events known as “mega-threats” on employees in the workplace during a lunchtime talk Sept. 20.
Leigh talked about a series of research papers where she explored mega-threats as well as initial findings from new research examining the broader effects of mega-threats on individuals who share identity with victims of a mega-threat and those who are members of a different racially stigmatized identity group.
Leigh is a member of the 2023 class of Kenan Institute Distinguished Fellows. Together they comprise an exemplary set of global scholars committed to leveraging their individual expertise, thought leadership, research and networks to further the institute’s efforts to examine and drive solutions to issues facing business and the economy today.
This year’s class is supporting the institute’s 2023 grand challenge, “Workforce Disrupted: Seeking the Labor Market’s Next Equilibrium,” and Leigh is among the Distinguished Fellows scheduled to speak at the Frontiers of Business Conference: Workforce Disrupted in Chapel Hill Oct. 12-13.
