Gender Equity In Business

Our partnership with the Kinsey Institute

The Kinsey Institute is a leader in scientific knowledge and research on issues of sexuality, gender, and reproduction. Founded in 1947, the Kinsey Institute has initiated and led an extensive array of scientific investigations related to human sexuality. With an interdisciplinary faculty and staff, the institute has become a trusted source for primary research, education, data archiving and source documents, and media expertise.

Through our partnership with the Kinsey Institute, faculty from the Kelley School will work alongside colleagues from the Kinsey Institute to develop and apply research-based approaches to long-standing gender inequity issues in the workplace.
