Finberg Director of the Clayman Institute for Gender Research and the founding director of the Center for the Advancement of Women’s Leadership. Professor Correll teaches classes in the sociology of gender, sociology of work and social psychology. Her research is in the areas of gender, workplace dynamics and organizational culture, examining how cultural beliefs about gender and work influence the career paths of men and women. Professor Correll has received numerous national awards for her research on the “motherhood penalty,” research that demonstrates how motherhood influences the workplace evaluations, pay and job opportunities of mothers. She is currently leading a nationwide, interdisciplinary project on “redesigning work” that evaluates how workplaces structures and practices can be better aligned with today’s workforce. She is also studying how gender stereotypes and organizational practices affect the entry and retention of women in technical professions, and how the growth of the craft beer industry affects the founding and success of women brewers.
