Dr. Comila Shahani-Denning, professor of psychology and director of the MA in Industrial/Organizational Psychology, was interviewed by Human Resource Executive about attractiveness bias in the workplace and how decisions based on non-job-related factors are detrimental to organizational performance. When people are hired and advance up the corporate ladder merely on the basis of appearance, she explains in the article, the knowledge, skills and abilities that are critical for success in that role take a back seat.

She was also interviewed by WalletHub, offering tips for people who are unhappy in their career.
