2021 Presenters

  • Anyi Ma, Ph.D.

    Dr. Anyi Ma   

    Assistant Professor of Management, Department of Management, A.B. Freeman School of Business, Tulane University

    Dr. Anyi Ma is an Assistant Professor of Management in the Department of Management at the A.B. Freeman School of Business, Tulane University. Her research concerns the topic of agency, which historically has been conceptualized as the tendency to assert the self and master the environment. In her dissertation, she developed a new multi-factor model of agency perceptions and found that conceptualizing agency perceptions in a more nuanced way can reconcile contradictory findings about female leadership advantage and disadvantage. She found that women were advantaged when they were perceived as hardworking, competent, self-assured, and independent, and they were disadvantaged when they were perceived as dominant. Dr. Ma's research has been published in Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, Leadership Quarterly, and Harvard Business Review. She received her Ph.D. from Fuqua School of Business, Duke University.
