About My Research...

“Leanne Son Hing is CIFAR Senior Fellow of the Successful Societies Program. Dr. Son Hing examines the interplay between ideals of justice (meritocracy, equality) and biases (prejudice, discrimination); as well as their consequences for well-being and social policy attitudes. In her newest line of research, she investigates how people’s negative evaluations of inequality at work (e.g., in pay, status, decision-making power) affects their well-being, job attitudes, and health. These negative effects likely operate through stress processes and worsened social relations (e.g., increased competition, decreased trust).”
