Bonnie D. Oglensky

Bonnie D. Oglensky, PhD, is a psychoanalytically-oriented sociologist, professor, and Academic Director of the Sociology and Human Relations Programs at The City University of New York, School of Professional Studies. Her interest in the socio-emotional complexities of professional and workplace relationships – particularly those like mentorship that are authority-based – have led to research and publication of well received books and monographs including The Part Time Paradox: Time Norms., Professional Life, Family and Gender (co-authored with C.F. Epstein, C. Seron, and R. Saute) and numerous scholarly and popular articles and reviews. Prior to her academic life, Dr Oglensky served on the executive team of Project Liberty – New York City's emergency mental health response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks and was a clinical social worker with battered women, homeless families, and school children at one of the oldest settlement houses in the U.S. She is deeply committed to bringing together frameworks for understanding how the psyche and social connect – especially, though not exclusively, in work life.
