My research project, entitled Pathways to Elite Professions: Gender, Class and Globalization in the Financial Sector, will collect comparative data from multiple sites on how individuals secure jobs and leadership positions within the financial sector. The findings will be contextualized within the broader scholarly debates around globalization, labor market stratification, cultural processes and inequality in different national contexts. By contributing data from understudied contexts, this project can help theorize the similarities and differences in processes of discrimination within hiring and promotion.
