"My career goals are to conduct rigorous research that helps to improve employees' experiences and organizational outcomes,” King said. “I am honored to receive this award and to see my work, and the important work of so many others on race and resilience, being recognized as intellectually stimulating and practically impactful."
King will present about her research at an upcoming APA event. More information on the award is available online at https://www.apa.org/about/awards/early-career-achievement?tab=2 .
