Verónica Caridad Rabelo

Verónica Caridad Rabelo, Ph.D. is Assistant Professor of Management in the College of Business at San Francisco State University. She received a Ph.D. in Psychology (Gender & Feminist Psychology) and Women’s Studies from the University of Michigan and a B.A. in Psychology with concentrations in Latin@ Studies and Africana Studies from Williams College. She uses an intersectional and interdisciplinary lens to examine how race/ethnicity, gender/sexuality, and social class shape experiences of mistreatment, mindfulness, compassion, and well-being in the workplace. She researches these topics from the perspectives of underrepresented, underserved, and under-studied communities, including employees who are people of color, immigrants, gender/sexual minorities, and lower income. Her research also identifies methods to make teaching, research methods, and workplace environments more inclusive. Veronica’s honors include a Student Scholar Latina Award from the American Psychological Association and the inaugural Diversity Research Award from the University of Michigan Department of Psychology. In her spare time, she enjoys practicing yoga, creating glass mosaics, relaxing with her two cats Lentil and Dipper, and crocheting items for her Etsy shop, with 100% of proceeds donated to social justice organizations ( For more about her research, teaching, and consulting, visit
