As an Industrial/Organizational Psychologist, Mary Hogue's research and expertise lie in the field of organizational behavior.
Her research examines the different work experiences of women and men. In particular, she examines how the social status attached to being a woman or a man becomes internalized, impacting the identity of individuals in ways that affect their thoughts about the pay they should receive, their attempts to lead others and their willingness to be led. She has also examined gender differences in technology usage, intentions toward faking in employment interviews, and career plans. Her research has appeared in Psychology of Women Quarterly, The Leadership Quarterly, Sex Roles, and Journal of Business Ethics among other outlets, and she's served on the editorial boards of Psychology of Women Quarterly and The Services Industries Journal.
Mary teaches leadership and organizational behavior to undergraduate, MBA and Ph.D. students, and she trains organizational members in the social processes involved in leadership.
