Megan Lambertz-Berndt current research explores how homogenous affinity groups both hinder and facilitate organizational diversity efforts due to elements of varying social identities (race, ability, age, gender, etc.) and perceived privileges with specific attention to white affinity group structures. Other research avenues include race and gender representation in sports. Recent publication include "Communicating identity in the workplace and affinity group spaces" in Studies in Media and Communication. Past achievements include a publication in the Journal of Conflict Resolution Quarterly on the media’s framing of liminal spaces in South Side Chicago communities, a co-authored publication in the Business and Professional Communication Quarterly Journal on leadership styles in group assignments, a co-authored publication in the Journal of the Association for Communication Administration on undergraduate communication degree program assessment plans and evaluations and several communication research methodological entries in SAGE Encyclopedia of Communication Research Methods.
