The Center for WorkLife Law is pleased to welcome Ryan Malek-Maple as a summer Research Assistant. Ryan will assist with data coding and analysis for the Center’s ongoing Bias Interrupters research partnerships as well as conduct literature reviews on gender and racial biases in business systems and informal workplace interactions.
“I look forward to working with the research team this summer on the Center’s Bias Interrupters projects” said Ryan. “I am excited to use research to advance equity and equality in the workplace and society as a whole.”
Prior to joining the Center for WorkLife Law, Ryan interned with the New Voter’s Project with CALPIRG UC Berkeley. The campaign focused on increasing access to the ballot box in California for college students, and was successful in pushing California to adopt a universal vote-by-mail law, which led Ryan to his interest in the relationship between policy and equity.
Ryan is currently a junior at the University of California, Berkeley studying political science and public policy. Outside of work, Ryan loves to enjoy the outdoors, volunteer in animal care, and explore the Bay Area with friends.
