Special Issue on Reducing Inequality in Organizations:
What Works? What Doesn’t?

The ILR Review is calling for papers for a conference and subsequent special issue devoted to identifying and developing organizational practices and processes that affect workplace inequality, diversity, and inclusion.  We seek innovative research that will advance our understanding of the organizational arrangements that help reduce the effects of bias and promote diverse and inclusive workplaces. Emilio J. Castilla (MIT) and Pamela S. Tolbert (ILR) will be the guest editors of the issue.

The remarkable gains in educational achievement and advances in the economic and social standing of women have been distinguishing features of the 20th and early 21st centuries. RSF: The Russell Sage Foundation Journal of the Social Sciences invites paper submissions for its upcoming special issue on the changing roles and status of women and the effects on society and the economy. The special issue will consider both the determinants of these important economic and social changes as well as their consequences. The first section will examine changes in women’s labor market outcomes including education, experience, occupations, and pay. The second section will address family and intimate relationships. The third section will address issues in politics, law, and culture.  The journal issue is being edited by Martha Bailey (Department of Economics, University of Michigan) and Thomas A. DiPrete (Department of Sociology, Columbia University).  For more detailed information about this issue, please click here.  Prospective contributors should submit a CV and an abstract of their study along with up to two pages of supporting material no later than 5 PM EST on August 7, 2014, to: https://rsfjournal.onlineapplicationportal.com  . . . Each paper will receive an honorarium when the issue is published. All questions should be directed to Suzanne Nichols, Director of Publications, at journals@rsage.org and not to the email addresses of the editors of the special issue.  Selected papers will receive notification by mid- September 2014. A meeting of the authors of invited papers will be held on January 9, 2015 at the RSF headquarters in New York City, and a draft of the full papers will be due in the late spring of 2015.  For more detailed information about this issue, please click here.

Mini-conference on “The Political Economy of Work and Labor Markets: Workplace Regimes in Comparative Perspective”, SASE Chicago 2014

We would welcome abstracts for the mini-conference on “The Political Economy of Work and Labor Markets: Workplace Regimes in Comparative Perspective” at the Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics (SASE) in Chicago.

This mini-conference is designed to bridge the gap between micro analyses of the workplace and macro political economy by fostering dialogue across disciplinary and sub-disciplinary boundaries. We invite papers that address different aspects of workplace organization (e.g. working time, security, pay, career ladders, the labor process, collective action, etc), their connections with macro-political institutions and actors, and adopt a comparative perspective. Submissions may use a range of methodological approaches (including case studies, quantitative methods, and qualitative comparative analysis), operate at different levels (national, regional, sectoral, corporate, etc.), and explore a wide variety of relevant topics.

Further details are available at: https://sase.org/mini-conferences/themes_fr_182.html#MC6

Paper abstracts must be submitted by January 20, 2014. Candidates will be notified by February 17, 2014. Please note that Mini-Conferences require an extended (~1,000 word) abstract, and ask that you submit a full paper by March 31, 2014.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you might have.

Best wishes,
