Bachelor of Business Administration in International Business and Human Resource Management
As an undergrad, majoring in both International Business and Human Resource Management major at Temple University, I had the opportunity to work on several industrial-organizational psychology research projects being led by faculty members at the Fox School of Business in the Human Resource Management Department. During these projects, I facilitated research sessions and input information about the sessions and the participants into Temple’s SONA system, which is Temple University’s Department of Psychology Research Participation System. One of the projects I had the opportunity to work on was focused on passive leadership. and the conference paper that I worked on as an undergraduate research assistant was accepted and presented at the 31th annual conference of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychologist, Anaheim, CA. Below is the resulting citation:
Holtz, B.C., Blot, J.F., Regina, J., & DeHoratius, E. (2016, April). Passive Leadership, Trust, and Perceptions of Justice.
Master of Science in Globalization and Development Communication
During my time as a graduate student in the GDC program, I conducted research for one of my professors in the field of Development Communication and I had my own work, Black Lives Matter’s Use of Media and Digital Platforms Analyzed through Works by Merlyna Lim, Todd Wolfson, and Sasha Costanza-Chock, be accepted into the Graduate Student Research Forum, where I also presented, BLM’s Use of Media and Digital Platforms Analyzed Presentation.
Additionally, during the GDC program, my cohort and I participated in Listening Post Philly, in conjunction with Resolve Philly and WHYY for our Solutions Journalism course. Listening Post Philly focused on economic realities of the Philadelphia region and the goal of Listening Post Philly was to hear from members of the community about their experiences of times when they faced economic inequality and poverty, as well as how they responded to these challenges. Background on the Listening Post, which began in New Orleans, can be found through the hyperlink.
During Solutions Journalism, I also wrote periodic blog postings and researched and interviewed individuals to write a final solutions-oriented journalism story, with both a written and audio component. My blog postings and solutions-oriented story can be found here: medium.com/@tuf02572
