Edward Yeung is a PhD student in Industrial/Organizational Psychology at the University of Waterloo. His research concerns understanding people in workplaces, with particular focus on the topics of diversity and leadership. In collaboration with the Waterloo Centre for the Advancement of Co-operative Education (WatCACE), he is currently examining the impact of various diversity recruitment practices on co-op students’ reactions to hiring organizations, the on-the-job impacts of these practices on their attitudes, behaviours, and performance during their co-op placements, and whether these outcomes differ across co-op students (i.e. by racial/ethnic group, gender, and diversity-related values).
