Angelica Leigh


Hello! My name is Angelica Leigh, Ph.D. and I am currently an Assistant Professor of Management and Organizations at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business.

My research centers upon topics related to race in organizations. I employ both quantitative and qualitative methods to understand the unique experiences and perceptions of underrepresented racial minority employees within diverse organizations. For example, in several research projects I examine how mega-threats, highly publicized identity-relevant societal events, like the death of Black civilians at the hands of police or mass shootings that target racial minority communities influence the work behaviors of racial minority employees. Furthermore, I also examine behaviors that racial minority employees engage in to combat racism and further advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace.

I am also very involved with the PhD Project organization, which is an organization dedicated to diversifying business school academia.
