Stephanie J. Creary is an Assistant Professor of management at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania.  She is an identity and diversity scholar and a field researcher. She is also a founding faculty member of the Wharton IDEAS lab (Identity, Diversity, Engagement, Affect, and Social Relationships), an affiliated faculty member of Wharton People Analytics, a Senior Fellow of the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics (LDI), and affiliated faculty member of the Penn Center for Africana Studies. Stephanie’s research centers on identifying and understanding the work that individuals and leaders do to manage identity in asymmetric relationships - where power differentials between relationship partners are high - and how their efforts shape self-views, relationship quality, and the performance of work. She is particularly interested in examining these dynamics in relationships between managers and their subordinates, minority and majority group members, and workers and their employing institutions.


Prior to joining the Wharton faculty, Stephanie was on the faculty of Cornell University. Prior to completing her PhD degree, she was a research associate at Harvard Business School and The Conference Board in NYC researching corporate diversity and inclusion practices. She also has extensive work experience in the health care industry. Stephanie has earned B.S. and M.S. degrees from the Boston University Sargent College of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences; an MBA degree from Simmons School of Management; and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Boston College Carroll School of Management.
