Benjamin Everly joined University of Sussex in September 2013 as a Lecturer in Organisational Behaviour. Prior to joining Sussex, he completed his PhD at the UCLA Anderson School of Management.

Benjamin's research focuses on intergroup relations and diversity management. At the individual level, his work explores how the presence and disclosure of diverse identities such as gender, race, and sexual orientation influence the attitudes and behavior of individuals. At the organizational level, his work examines how diversity impacts organizational performance and how organizations can best manage a diverse workforce through human resources policies.
