Jen Runkle, PhD, believes that the world can be a better place if we all took a minute to be a little nicer. Her 15 years of experience in corporate America have convinced her of the need. Working inside a big 5 consulting firm, one of the premier clothing stores, and a global manufacturing conglomerate has provided rich material from which her work is based. Valued as a trustworthy confidant, CEOs, VPs, managers, and employees gravitate to her to discuss their organizational issues.
Before joining these prestigious Fortune 500 companies, she completed her BS in Philosophy and Psychology from Boston College. Her doctorate degree in Industrial and Organizational Psychology from the Illinois Institute of Technology helped prepare her as she specialized in selection, performance appraisal, and organizational development. Her Master’s and Doctorate research focused on the ways we organize the world and the resulting biases in management.
She is involved in the community with board membership, volunteer work, and presentations for the San Francisco Suicide Prevention, Contact Pittsburgh, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Pittsburgh Coaches Association, the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychologists, and the American Psychological Association.
