About Me

Oriane Georgeac is an Assistant Professor of Management & Organizations at Boston University's Questrom School of Business. Her research interests focus on how people respond to organizational messages about diversity. In one program of research, she investigates the effects of organizations’ justifications for why they value diversity on underrepresented group members and team managers. In another stream of her research, she examines how people respond to information reflecting organizations’ achievements in increasing women’s representation in top leadership. Her research across these two streams offers novel insights into how organizations’ efforts to support diversity may paradoxically prevent them from advancing toward their diversity goals.

Dr. Georgeac's work has been published in top journals in psychology and management, including the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, 

Journal of Applied PsychologyJournal of Experimental Psychology: General, and Social Psychological and Personality Science. Her work has also won multiple awards, and has been covered by a variety of media outlets, including Harvard Business ReviewForbesThe Economist, The Telegraph, and The Hill.

Dr. Georgeac got her PhD from London Business School. Prior to joining BU, she worked at Yale University's School of Management from 2020-2023. In addition to her research, Dr. Georgeac currently teaches Negotiations in the MBA and undergraduate programs at Questrom School of Business.
