Asia Eaton is a feminist social psychologist and Assistant Professor of Psychology at Florida International University (FIU). She is a core faculty member in the I-O Psychology Program and the Developmental Psychology Program at FIU and supervises Ph.D. students in both programs. Her research broadly examines the social and psychological causes and consequences of sexism. Specifically, she explores how gender intersects with identities such as race and sexual orientation to affect individuals’ access to and experience with social power in (1) the workplace and (2) intimate partner relationships. In her research on the workplace she seeks to answer questions like “how do stereotypes about gender, race, and sexuality affect people’s access to power in organizations?” and “how do men and women decide to disclose stigmatized identities at work, and what are the consequences of that disclosure?”
Asia is an Associate Editor for Psychology of Women Quarterly and a Consulting Editor for Sex Roles, has received SPSSI’s Michele Alexander Early Career Award for Scholarship and Service, and has won FIU’s most prestigious faculty award for advising and mentorship, as well as teaching awards from FIU and the University of Chicago.
