    Personal Bio

    Holly Slay Ferraro's current research examines the role of networks and identity in career transition decision making, career decision making at midlife/mid-career and the impact of demographic diversity on leadership attributions. She is especially interested in issues of professional identity and the influence that other identities (including race, gender, and organizational) may have on the construction of professional identity and the outcomes associated with professional identity. She recently published an article in Human Resource Management and a book chapter in the Handbook of Career Studies. Dr. Ferraro's research on midlife/midcareer transition won a Cutting Edge Award from Academy of Human Resource Development.
