A Bit About Me
My name is Manzah-Kyentoh Yankey. I’m a PhD Student in the Department of Sociology at the University of Alberta. I completed my Bachelor of Arts Honours (B.A Hons) in Criminology at the University of Manitoba and a Master of Arts (MA) in Sociology at the University of Alberta. My research interests include race, policing, punishment, criminalization, and inequality. My MA thesis examined police culture from an intersectional approach. My Ph.D. dissertation will examine monetary sanctions (fees and fines) in Canada and how it perpetuates racial and economic inequality.
I’m currently working as a research assistant for Dr. Theresa Chika-James, Department of Management and Organizations, School of Business at MacEwan University on a research project on interpersonal mistreatment in the workplace. I’m interested in understanding how Black women respond to mistreatment at work and how organizations could help improve Black women’s work experiences.
