Professor of Organizational Behavior at Stanford University

Brian Lowery

Brian Lowery is a Professor of Organizational Behavior at Stanford University and is currently co-teaching Inside Life and Leadership with Handel Group EVP Leslie Simone at Stanford Graduate School of Business. Professor Lowery is a social psychologist by training.

He received his doctorate from UCLA in 2001 with a minor in statistical methods. Professor Lowery’s research has two major threads. The first thread examines the oper- ation of racial attitudes below the threshold of consciousness. The second thread focuses on how people perceive inequality. Underlying both lines of work is the assumption that individuals may unintentionally exacerbate existing inequity, despite supporting the ideal of a just and fair society. This research has been published in major scholarly journals such as the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, and Law and Human Behavior.

Professor Lowery’s teaching focuses on translating basic knowledge about human in- teractions into lessons for managers. He currently teaches introductory organizational behavior courses for both master’s and doctorate level students. In addition, he teaches a seminar on managing diversity.
