Eller Professor of Management and Organizations Referenced in Huffington Post


Allison Gabriel, McClelland Professor of Management and Organizations and University Distinguished Scholar was referenced in a recent Huffington Post article about the nationwide baby formula crisis.

The article points out the ongoing controversy that breastfeeding is free and therefore, women shouldn’t rely on formula.

“Breastfeeding—and relatedly pumping breastmilk—is not free because it consumes women’s time and resources in ways that amount to another job on top of being a mother,” says Gabriel. “This means that breastfeeding is only free if we do not value women’s time and the efforts it takes to physically be the ones to produce breastmilk to feed their children.”

Gabriel joined the Eller College of Management in 2015 after serving as an Assistant Professor of Management in the School of Business at Virginia Commonwealth University for two years. She earned her PhD in Industrial and Organizational Psychology in 2013 from the University of Akron, and her BA in Psychology in 2008 from Penn State University. Her research focuses on emotions at work, employee recovery, interpersonal work stressors, relationships at work, motivation, and employee well-being, and has resulted in several awards from the Academy of Management (AOM) and Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP). For her teaching, she was selected by Poets and Quants as a Top Undergraduate Business School Professor in 2018. She currently serves as an Associate Editor at Journal of Applied Psychology.
