Angelica S. Gutierrez

Professor of Management, Loyola Marymount University

Angélica S. Gutiérrez, Ph.D. earned her B.A. in Political Science and Sociology with honors at UCLA, M.P.P at the University of Michigan, Ph.D. at the UCLA Anderson School of Management, and was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the National Center for Institutional Diversity and University of Michigan Ross School of Business.

Recognized as one of the “World’s Best 40 Under 40 Business Professors,” Dr. Gutiérrez teaches Leadership, Negotiations, and Organizational Behavior at the undergraduate and graduate (MBA, MScM, Executive MBA) levels as a tenured professor at Loyola Marymount University in the College of Business Administration. Additionally, she is a contributor for Inc. Magazine and writes articles on workplace policies, entrepreneurship, negotiations, impostor syndrome and impostorization.

Dr. Gutiérrez coined the term impostorization, which refers to the policies, practices, and seemingly innocuous interactions in organizations that make (or intend to make) individuals question their intelligence, competence, and sense of belonging. In addition to publishing in academic and popular press outlets, she presents her research on impostor syndrome and impostorization at national and regional academic conferences, and for organizations in the non-profit, public, and private sectors.
