Research Interests

Dana Kabat-Farr's research focuses on workplace social experiences – both negative (incivility, harassment) and positive (citizenship). She has examined (1) relationships between workgroup "tokenism" and gender harassment, (2) incivility as covert discrimination against women and people of colour, and (3) positive and negative experiences that influence employees' ability to thrive.
