Dr. Angela Kornau is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Chair of Human Resource Management at Helmut Schmidt University Hamburg, Germany. She studied international economics with a focus on Sinology at the Eberhard-Karls-University Tübingen and received her doctorate (summa cum laude) at the Chair of International Human Resource Management and Intercultural Leadership at ESCP Business School, Berlin. In her research she deals with equality, diversity and inclusion in organizations from a multi-actor perspective. Special focus is on context-specific and international comparative research questions as well as the dimensions of gender and migration. More recently, she has also been interested in how grand societal challenges such as digitalization affect inequalities in working life and which solutions can be offered by alternative forms of organizing. Her research activities have been funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), the German Academic Exchange Program (DAAD) and the Böttcher Foundation. Her work has been published in leading international journals such as Human Resource Management, International Journal of Human Resource Management, Journal of Vocational Behavior and Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. She has gained research and work experience in China, Turkey and Mexico.
