By Appointment


Dr. Alex Lindsey is an Assistant Professor of Management in the Fogelman College of Business and Economics at The University of Memphis. He earned his Ph.D. in Industrial and Organizational Psychology from George Mason University in 2016. Dr. Lindsey's program of research investigates fair and equitable solutions to mitigate diversity-related challenges such as prejudice and discrimination in the workplace. Because seemingly trivial instances of disadvantage can create substantial inequity over time in the workplace, it represents a ripe context in which to study manifestations of disadvantage and potential solutions to these serious problems. His research seeks to generate effective strategies that targets of prejudice, their allies, and organizations can use to reduce inequality and promote inclusion in the workplace. Specifically, Dr. Lindsey's work has addressed diversity training effectiveness, impression and identity management strategies, and demographic representativeness in management. This work has been published in quality outlets such as Journal of Applied Psychology, Harvard Business Review, Journal of Management Studies, Journal of Vocational Behavior, and Journal of Business and Psychology.
