Bailyn earned a BA in mathematics from Swarthmore College and an MA and a PhD in social psychology from Harvard University.
From her faculty research web site:
She studies the relationship between managerial practice and employees’ lives. Her research investigates how institutional and organizational processes intersect with people’s lives, with special emphasis on the dynamics of gender and diversity in business organizations and academia. Bailyn argues that industries will fail in an intensely competitive world unless they take into account the changing nature of the professional workforce— including the influx of women and the consequent lifestyle changes for both women and men. Her work in organizations shows that work and personal life are complementary, even synergistic, rather than adversarial. By challenging the assumptions in which current work practices are embedded, the goals of both business productivity and employees’ family and community concerns can be met in ways that are equitable for both men and women.
