Melaku is a Sociologist, Assistant Professor of Management at Zicklin School of Business, Baruch College (CUNY), and author of You Don't Look Like a Lawyer: Black Women and Systemic Gendered Racism, which reflects the emphasis of her scholarly interests on race, gender, class, workplace inequities, intersectionality, and organizations. Dr. Melaku’s work has been featured in the Harvard Business Review, New York Times, The Washington Post, Bloomberg Law, The Boston Globe, Inside Higher Ed, Fortune, Teen Vogue, and other outlets.
