I am interested in identity-based social movements and the ways they interact with large companies to foster change in their diversity policies. In France, I have been conducting fieldwork in non-profit organizations of different kinds: support groups and advocacy groups for people with disabilities, youth movement developing raising awareness campaign on different minorities, LGBT social movements, mentoring networks and recruitment agencies for "visible minorities," etc. My research is mostly based on qualitative methods (ethnography and interviews).
