G1 PhD, Public Policy, 2017, Adrienne Hall Mentorship Fund
Center for Public Leadership June 1, 2013 – August 20, 2013

Heidi conducted experimental research at the Kennedy School's Center for Public Leadership (CPL) this summer. Under the mentorship of Dr. Hannah Riley Bowles, Heidi's work at CPL focused on two projects:  the relationship between public decision-making and gender, and how situational contexts might contribute to gender differences in competitive behavior. She hopes to apply this understanding of how male and female decision makers are perceived by others - and how this perception might drive their decisions - towards policy that has significance for those seeking employment or leadership positions.
