Ines Jurcevic

Assistant Professor

Ines takes a multi-method approach to conducting research at the intersection of social psychology and public management. She examines processes related to stereotyping, prejudice, discrimination, and diversity.

Ines is particularly interested in examining the benefits and challenges that come with managing diversity, equity and inclusion.  She examines these questions from organizational perspectives, the perspectives of dominant group identities, and from the perspective of people with negatively stereotyped or marginalized identities. Her work aims to understand how people and organizations think about diversity, equity and inclusion and how this translates into efforts to promote or undermine various initiatives and interventions. Further, she examines how people’s individual attitudes, identities and group memberships inform these processes and influence performance and interpersonal outcomes in these contexts.

Ines completed a B.S. in Psychology, with distinction from the University of Washington. She holds a M.A. and Ph.D. in Social Psychology from the University of California, Los Angeles with a minor in Quantitative Psychology. Prior to joining Evans in 2017, she was a post-doctoral scholar at the University of Virginia’s Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy and adjunct lecturer at the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business.
