Susan Case researches a variety of topics in the field of gender and diversity in organizations. They include how multi-culturalism affects communication in decision-making, multi-cultural work teams, managerial assessment and development, and differences in diversity learning among racial and ethnic groups. Case’s work with women focuses on managing priorities, understanding career-in-life issues and aligning expectations with values. She also studies differences in men’s and women’s communication patterns in organizations, the reasons they exist, and the contributions of women’s patterns. Another line of work explores opportunities and barriers that women around the world face when pursuing careers as scientists, government or business leaders, and in nontraditional fields such as police work. Case’s studies in nontraditional careers tackle the issues of discrimination, hostile work environments, harassment and ways to prevent them.
