Bridget Lockyer
Postdoctoral Research Associate



I joined the York Management School in 2017 as a Research Associate on the ESRC-funded study LGBT+ Networks, which maps the operation of LGBT employee networks within the NHS and assesses their potential to create and sustain more inclusive work environments. I am part of the Organisational Behaviour, Theory and Technology (OBTT) subject group within the school.

I completed my PhD at the Centre for Women’s Studies, University of York in 2014. My thesis examined the experiences of women in paid and unpaid work within the UK voluntary sector. My research specialisms and interests are focused around gender inequality and segregation in employment and include: precarity and insecurity, career narratives, gendered expectations of job quality and the formalisation of work.

I am an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and have experience in teaching research methods, feminist theory, gender studies and modern history to both undergraduate and postgraduate students.


Prior to joining the management school, I was Research Fellow at Canterbury Christ Church University working on the multi-site Museums on Prescription project, which investigated the value of museum encounters on the health and wellbeing of socially isolated older adults. Between 2013 and 2014, I co-organised the AHRC funded project, Teaching Women’s History, which considered how women’s history featured on the national history curriculum and the barriers to teaching and learning women’s history.
