Pooja Mishra is an Assistant professor of Organisational Behaviour at the Indian School of Business. Her research integrates insights from sociology and psychology with the organisational literature to generate a precise understanding of sources of disadvantage for women, workers from families of lower socioeconomic status, and older workers. In so doing her research generates actionable knowledge on how organisations can manage social problems and play a positive role in broader concerns of socioeconomic mobility and equality of opportunity. Her dissertation identifies family influences on work as a reason underlying challenges workers from poorer families face in organisations, and her dissertation also tests and uncovers both institutional and psychological interventions that help resolve the issue.
