Rachana’s work at Columbia University (2016) focused on the individual behaviors and environmental conditions for effectively bringing men into diversity initiatives, preparing men for their important roles as participants and as advocates for workplace change.

She has prepared her research through countless interviews with professional men at the board level, senior- and middle-management, and on the front lines; focusing on male-dominated industries such as the military, sports, financial services and technology.
