ILR Review

Call for Papers

Special Issue and Conference on Reducing Inequality in Organizations:

What Works? What Doesn’t?

The ILR Review is calling for papers for a conference and a 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 to reduce the effects of bias and to promote diverse and inclusive workplaces. Emilio J. Castilla (MIT) and Pamela S. Tolbert (ILR, Cornell) will be the guest editors of the issue.

Here are a couple of reminders about OOW’s schedule for this year’s ASA conference in San Francisco:

Our EIGHT Section Sessions will be held SATURDAY AND SUNDAY.

The OOW Business Meeting is scheduled for Sat, August 16, 5:30 to 6:10pm.  Attend the Business Meeting for the celebration of our graduate student paper, article, and book awardees.  Witness a peaceful transfer of power from the Section Chair to the Chair Elect, Mark Mizruchi, before you head over to the Reception and the Networking Dinners.

The OOW Reception will be held SATURDAY jointly with the Inequality, Poverty and Mobility Section at the Parc55 Wyndham Hotel.  We will offer an array of appetizers alongside a cash bar.

OOW Networking dinners after the reception.  We started the practice last year of organizing small groups of mixed seniority levels who meet at local restaurants for conversation.  Kim Fox has kindly agreed to coordinate the dinners.  Please contact her at Kimberly.Fox@bridgew.edu, and we’ll put together some groups and restaurant recommendations.

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.
