Uncovering social stratification:
Intersectional inequalities in work and family life courses by gender and race

Anette Fasang, Ph.D.

Enduring and accumulated advantages and disadvantages in work and family lives are closely connected, but this connection varies by gender and race. How interdependent are work and family lives? What types of work and family lives typically co-occur for Black and White men and women?

At this year’s Kanter Lecture, 2023 Kanter Winner, Dr. Anette Fasang will explore an intersectional life course perspective on gendered and racialized combinations of work and family lives from early adulthood to mid-life, and the long-term perspective that maps enduring and accumulated (dis)advantages over 20 years of life.
