Dr. Johnson enjoys building work cultures for the whole human being – in an equitable way. She researches and teaches topics related to work(places), equity, and wellness. Largely drawing upon field research and qualitative methods, she has studied these topics in the context of autism, race, social class, sexual orientation, and gender across a wide range of organizations (including non-profits, schools, and social enterprises). Her work has been published in major management outlets such as Organization Science, Journal of Applied Psychology, Organizational Behavior and Decision- Making Processes, Organizational Psychology Review, Organization Studies, and Work and Occupations. Her dissertation research on building bridges between members of stigmatized and non-stigmatized groups in workplaces was a finalist in the 2015 INFORMS Competition. Her current research and teaching on racial equity in the coffee industry has received grants from Sustainability Next and the Ray C. Anderson Center for Sustainable Business.
