Angélica S. Gutiérrez, Ph.D. earned her B.A. in Political Science and Sociology with honors at UCLA, M.P.P at the University of Michigan, Ph.D. at the UCLA Anderson School of Management, and was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the National Center for Institutional Diversity and the University of Michigan Ross School of Business.

Recognized as one of the “World’s Best 40 Under 40 Business Professors,” Dr. Gutiérrez teaches Leadership, Negotiations, and Diversity Management at the undergraduate and graduate (MBA, MScM, Executive MBA) levels at Loyola Marymount University in the College of Business Administration. Additionally, she is a contributor for Inc. Magazine and writes articles on diversity, minority businesses, negotiations, and imposter syndrome. Dr. Gutiérrez coined the term impostorization, which refers to the policies, practices, and seemingly innocuous interactions in organizations that make (or intend to make) individuals question their intelligence, competence, and sense of belonging. She has published her work on social hierarchy, racial and gender inequality, diversity, imposter syndrome, and impostorization in academic and practitioner outlets, including Journal of Business Research, Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Equality Diversity and Inclusion, Entrepreneurship Research Journal, and MIT Sloan Management Review.

Dr. Gutiérrez also presents her research at national and regional academic conferences, and for organizations in the non-profit, public, and private sectors, including the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Kraft-Heinz, Mattel, Abbott, Google, Morgan Stanley, and universities across the nation. Consistent with her commitment to reducing gender and racial pay disparities, Dr. Gutiérrez also teaches employment negotiations to organizations that serve minoritized groups
