New Publication: Within-job gender pay inequality in 15 countries

Led by Andrew Penner, the Comparative Organizational Inequality Network (COIN) has published a paper in Nature, Human Behaviour  that compares gender pay gaps and their firm, occupation, job segregation components and within job pay gaps using administrative data for fifteen countries. 

Read the article here.

Abstract Extant research on the gender pay gap suggests that men and women who do the same work for the same employer receive similar pay, so that processes sorting people into jobs are thought to account for the vast majority of the pay gap. Data that can identify women and men who do the same work for the same employer are rare, and research informing this crucial aspect of gender differences in pay is several decades old and from a limited number of countries. Here, using recent linked employer–employee data from 15 countries, we show that the processes sorting people into different jobs account for substantially less of the gender pay differences than was previously believed and that within-job pay differences remain consequential.

Postdoc Position: Postdoc at Wharton

Wharton People Analytics is seeking two postdoctoral researchers to assist in the development of research projects in people analytics, primarily in collaboration with Professors Matthew Bidwell and Peter Cappelli. We are seeking to launch two new multi-year projects. One will explore the role of analytics in managing frontline workers, examining how technology can improve the conditions under which employees work. A second project seeks to develop our understanding of the challenges involved in managing remote and hybrid work. As the projects are just beginning, successful applicants will help to define the research and consequent publications. They will also have opportunities to continue to advance their own research agendas.

The roles will have two main responsibilities. In the initial phases of the project, the postdoctoral researchers will liaise with companies as we seek to build partnerships for this research. Activities may include setting up small conferences and writing research proposals. As the project develops, we will gather and analyze data. The postdoctoral researchers will be expected to take the lead in this process. In addition, the researchers may be asked to assist with the broader work of the People Analytics Initiative and the Center for Human Resources from time to time

Successful candidates will be expected to have the following competencies:

  • Ability to effectively manage relationships with corporate partners
  • Ability to manage and analyze large datasets, through familiarity with at least one programming environment (e.g. R, Stata, Python) and preferably more.
  • A strong background in multivariate statistical analyses
  • Ability to work independently and be proactive in developing a research project.
  • A good grasp of fundamental concepts around employment and careers

Although we are open to a variety of profiles, we believe that the successful candidate is likely to benefit from having had some of the following experiences:

  • PhD (or ABD) in management, sociology, economics, industrial relations or IO psychology with a research focus on employment issues
  • Previous experience in working with complex dataset
  • Work experience in a corporate setting

The salary will be between $54,800 and $65,000 depending on qualifications and years of experience. Benefits include health insurance and paid vacation and sick leave.

To apply, please e-mail your CV, cover letter, one representative publication or working paper, and the names and contact information for two references to peopleanalytics@wharton.upenn.edu by February 28th 2023.

Announcement: Diane Vaughan’s “Dead Reckoning: Air Traffic Control, System Effects, and Risk” (Chicago, 2021) has been selected for the 2023 American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Gardner-Lasser Aeronautics and Astronautics History Literature Award.

Dead Reckoning is an historical ethnography covering the life course of the air traffic control system from system emergence through 2017. Based on archival research and field work in four air traffic control facilities, the book focuses on how historical conditions, social actors, and events in the system’s institutional environment – political, economic, technological, cultural – impact the air traffic organization, changing it, and how in turn those changes affect not only the social, technological, and material arrangements of the workplace, but also controllers’  interpretive work, cultural understandings, and work practices. Far from a top-down model, controllers – the workers at the bottom of the hierarchy – respond to these events, making repairs that supply organizational resilience. Building on work on institutional logics, boundaries and boundary work, culture and cognition, and expertise, the case demonstrates the connection between institutional change, agency, and persistence over the life course.

Announcement: Gender, Professions, and Organizations Writing Workshop (SWS 2023 Winter Meeting)

Register now for the 21st semi-annual Gender, Professions, and Organizations writing workshop at the SWS winter conference (Thurs, Jan 5th) by e-mailing Sharla Alegria (sharla.alegria@utoronto.ca

The 21st semi-annual Gender, Professions, and Organizations Writing Workshop is back to its in-person format from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm on Thursday, January 12, 2023 – the day of pre-conference activities for the Sociologists for Women in Society Winter Meeting in New Orleans. Originally a workgroup of sociologists studying gender and academic careers, scientific organizations, and organizational transformations to promote gender equality, the workshop has grown to now include scholars of gender, professions, and organizations more broadly. Our aims are to learn about the range of work of attendees, facilitate collaboration, build community across career stages, and MOST IMPORTANTLY to dedicate time for writing. This is an opportunity to write, network, and collaborate. We encourage new and returning participants. If you’ve never come, welcome, and if you have, welcome back! 

As a group, we will discuss our current research projects. This exercise provides useful information to explore potential collaborations throughout the day. There will be designated blocks of independent, quiet writing time. You may use this time any way you wish: brainstorm a new paper, put finishing touches on a manuscript, work with collaborators, or analyze data. There will be separate, designated spaces for conversations around research and collaboration.

The full-day workshop is organized as two standalone sessions, each with time for introductions and time for writing. We will take a lunch break in between the two sessions at a nearby restaurant. At the end of the day, we come together for a discussion of what we have accomplished and our future plans. Participants are welcome to join for the morning, afternoon, or both. We will make a reservation for lunch (self-paid) for all who wish to join.

Anyone attending SWS is welcome to join the workshop. The workshop begins early on the 12th, so we recommend arriving in New Orleans on the 11th. Send an email to Sharla Alegria (sharla.alegria@utoronto.ca) by January 5th  to register. 

Your SWS meeting fee will cover the room cost for the workshop. Participants should bring their own laptop computers (and maybe an extension cord) and snacks to share, as we do not have extra funding.

 Best,

Call for Applications: CASBS Summer Institute on Organizations and their Effectiveness

Since 2016, the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford has run a two-week summer “boot camp” for young faculty in sociology, economics, law, management, and political science with the aim of getting organizations researchers out of their disciplinary and methodological silos. During the pandemic, we have met online, but we are now preparing for an in-person workshop for July 2023. The institute brings together young faculty and postdoctoral fellows from across the world to learn from notable faculty and each other, through lectures, hacks, discussion, and walks. Led by Bob Gibbons (MIT Sloan and Economics) and Woody Powell (Stanford Education and Sociology, currently director of CASBS), they are joined by “guest chefs” from many disciplines. Recent visitors to the workshop have included Kate Kellogg, Dan Carpenter, Hahrie Han, Jenna Bednar, Scott Page, Adam Reich, Marianne Bertrand, Rebecca Henderson, and Jerry Davis. Participants describe the experience as transformational, and an exceptional way to build an inter-disciplinary organizations committee.

We are now taking applications for Summer 2023. For more information about applying, please go to:
