Slide background

Prof.dr. Naomi Ellemers

Distinguished university professor

Social psychologist Naomi Ellemers examines the behavior
of people in organizations. Her main topics of expertise are
Diversity and Inclusion, and Integrity and Ethics at work.

To investigate the behavior of people in organizations, Naomi Ellemers combines experimental methodologies examining brain activity and stress with observations of people in the workplace. Her aim is to understand how group affiliations impact on individual behaviors. In this way she identifies the work experiences of women, ethnic minorities, and members of the LGBT community. She also examines how individuals are guided by the ethical climate at work, for instance in the financial sector.

Ellemers was elected member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW), and Corresponding Fellow of the British Academy. Among the distinctions she received is the NWO-Spinoza Award.

She is member of the supervisory board of PwC the Netherlands, and chair of the Kurt Lewin Institute. She is one of the initiators of the National Integration Fund and one of Athena’s Angels.
