LA&PS Spotlights

Early Career Scholars: Anja Krstic

Early Career Scholars: Anja Krstic

Early career scholars more than often bring diversity, innovation and cutting-edge research to their institutions. Last fall, LA&PS welcomed 35 new faculty members, and Anja Krstic was among this new cohort who joined the School of Human Resource Management as an assistant professor. In this issue, we spotlight professor Krstic, her research interests and important contributions to the field.

“One of my areas of research centers around parental leaves and the impact that they can have on women’s and men’s career outcomes,” explained professor Krstic. Her research reveals the gender inequalities and gendered perceptions underlying these effects. For instance, “longer parental leaves may undermine women’s career progression into management positions because they are viewed as less ambitious and committed to their work. On the other hand, parental leaves may aid men’s progression into management positions because they are viewed as warm and sensitive to others, characteristics that are seen as increasingly effective in management in today’s business landscape.” Professor Krstic expands on these findings in this open access HBR piece.

With that, Professor Krstic’s work identified and tested “ways that women can take a longer leave without experiencing negative career outcomes, such as a corporate policy that provides women with the opportunity to “keep in touch” with the workplace while on leave.” Her research accentuates that, while important, it is not enough to examine and document barriers that people may face in the workplace. Rather it should be coupled with testing solutions that can help people overcome these barriers. Connect with Dr. Anja Krstic to know more about her work.
