Associate Professor of Organisational Behaviour
Academic Director, INSEAD Gender Initiative
Zoe Kinias is an Associate Professor of Organisational Behaviour at INSEAD and the Academic Director of INSEAD’s Gender Initiative. She is also a member of the INSEAD Randomized Control Trials Lab. Professor Kinias has two broad research goals: to understand how individuals, particularly those who are chronically or contextually vulnerable, can become more resilient, and to understand the consequences of diversity for emotions, cognitions, and performance. Her resiliency research stream investigates the factors that facilitate effective decision-making, performance, and wellbeing. This work focuses on interventions that attenuate biases, reduce negative emotion, and improve individual and group outcomes. Her diversity research stream seeks to understand how social identities—in particular gender, ethnicity, and cultural background—influence people’s cognitive processes, emotional states, and evaluations.
