Invitation to Researchers to Provide their Perspective on the Queen Bee Phenomenon

My name is Samantha Hancock, I am a PhD Candidate in Organizational Behavior at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, ON, Canada. In collaboration with Dr. Winny Shen at the University of Waterloo, we are conducting research on the Queen Bee Phenomenon.

Specifically, we are interested in understanding points of agreement and disagreement with regards to what constitutes Queen Bee behavior and whether or not members of the scientific community who study gender and diversity issues believe this is a real phenomenon in organizations or a myth perpetuated by the popular press. The survey should take no more than 15 minutes of your time. If you would like more information, please click the link below to proceed to the information letter and consent form. The survey will remain open for two weeks, until December 12, 2017, at midnight EST.

If you know of anyone else in your professional network who may be interested in participating, please feel free to forward our email to them. If you have questions at any time about the study or the procedures, please contact us, Dr. Winny Shen, at winny.shen@uwaterloo.ca or Samantha Hancock at hanc7610@mylaurier.ca. Thank you very much for your assistance with our research, it is greatly appreciated!


This study has been reviewed and received ethics clearance through a University of Waterloo Research Ethics Committee (ORE #22590) and the Research Ethics Board at Wilfrid Laurier University (REB #5523).

Sincerely, Samantha Hancock & Winny Shen

Validation Study: Survey Responses Requested!

As part of our thesis requirements, two researchers are hoping to get some help from the SIOP community to validate their measure on growth after highly stressful experiences at work.

The purpose of our study is to measure the positive growth experienced after a very stressful event at work. Some examples of this type of stress could be going through major organizational change, layoffs at work, conflict among colleagues, overwhelming workload, witnessing or experiencing harassment etc.

The qualifying criteria to take the survey are as follows:

  • you are 19 years or older
  • you have have been through any form of a highly stressful experience at work in the last 10 years
  • you are a fluent English speaker

The time this survey should take to complete is between 10-15 minutes. We hope that you can find the time to complete this and potentially pass it on to 2 others who you know may fit the qualifications.

You can access the survey through the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/WPGrowth

The deadline for taking the survey is: November 30, 2017

You will have the opportunity at the end to be entered to win one of 5 $20 Starbucks gift cards and receive an executive summary of the results if you so choose.

Virtual Workers Needed for Dissertation Research

I am a SIOP student member and PhD candidate in I-O Psychology at the University of Phoenix.  I am seeking virtual workers to participate in my mixed methods dissertation research.  Although research on virtual teams continues to increase, the available research does not include research findings based on a significant sample of workplace virtual team members, as opposed to research based on student populations.  The purpose of this sequential explanatory mixed methods study (QUAN-QUAL) is to explore the perspectives of virtual team members about how performance coaching, mentoring, training, and learning contribute to their personal development as a virtual team member.  The link to the first phase survey is below:


Deadline for the survey is: December 31, 2017
