Sociology 108: Inequality at Work




The American workplace has become much more diverse over the past 30 years, with women and minorities moving into greater positions of authority. But significant inequalities remain. Why? This course explores how sociologists go about analyzing the reasons for workplace inequalities using a variety of methods from ethnography to surveys to experiments. Using case studies, we pay particular attention to how work can be restructured in ways that increase participation and equality.
