Research Initiative:

Tamara Buckley, Assistant Professor, Educational Foundations and Counseling Programs, at Hunter College, and Erica Gabrielle Foldy, Assistant Professor of Public and Nonprofit Management at the Wagner School of Public Service, New York University, form a working group that will bring the insights of both psychology and management to bear on fostering learning and effectiveness in culturally diverse teams. They theorize that acknowledging and engaging cultural differences facilitates team learning better than a “color-blind” approach. They will analyze the results of a multi-method longitudinal study of racially and ethnically diverse team workers at a state child welfare agency and will report their findings in a series of journal articles.
