Faculty & Staff Directory


Julie Holliday Wayne earned her PhD in Industrial/Organizational Psychology at the University of Georgia in 1998. Since then, she has been a faculty member at Wake Forest University and is currently an Associate Professor in the Schools of Business. In her research, she studies issues related to challenges created by changing demographics and roles of men and women in society. She has published research on sexual harassment, the work-family interface, and workgroup diversity in numerous journals including Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Vocational Behavior, Organizational Research Methods, Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology, and Human Resource Management. In her work, she focuses on positive aspects of individual and organizational functioning. For example, rather than a focus on conflict, she studies how work and family can benefit one another and factors that promote work-family balance. She also seeks to understand biases against underrepresented groups or understudied topics in organizations (such as perceptions of men using family leave and same-sex sexual harassment). She has earned numerous awards for her teaching and research including being a finalist for the Rosabeth Moss Kanter Award for the "best of the best" in work-family research. She has consulted within the federal government and the insurance, financial services, telecommunications, quick service restaurant, and shipping industries and has designed performance appraisal and validated selection systems, developed employee attitude surveys and feedback, facilitated focus groups on work-life balance and conducted workshops on personality and teamwork, among others. She has taught courses in management, organizational behavior, human resource management, statistics, and contemporary organizational issues such as work-life balance.
