Ann Marie Ryan is a professor of organizational psychology.  Her major research interests involve improving the quality and fairness of employee selection methods, and topics related to diversity and justice in the workplace.   In addition to publishing extensively in these areas (she has published over 200 peer reviewed articles and  book chapters), she regularly consults with organizations on improving assessment processes.   Her most recent research is focusing on biases related to newer uses of technology in hiring contexts, designing recruitment processes to more effectively signal identity safety for those underrepresented in a particular work context, addressing ways to mitigate potential discrimination in hiring contexts, and understanding effective versus ineffective and performative actions by allies and organizations in addressing equity, inclusion and diversity in organizational contexts.
