Dr. Jill Yavorsky is an Assistant Professor in the Sociology department and Organizational Science program at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte. I teach both undergraduate courses (i.e., Gender, Work, and Family, and; Sociology of Sexuality) and graduate courses (i.e., Sociology of Work, and; Macro-Organizational Theory).
I also have ongoing projects that investigate how workplace interactions influence people’s beliefs and outcomes; occupational segregation patterns; dynamics of top income and wealth earners, and; divisions of labor of new parents.
My research has been published in a variety of outlets, including Journal of Marriage and Family, Sex Roles, The Sociological Quarterly, and Sociological Forum and has garnered widespread media attention, appearing in New York Times, TIME, Washington Post, Newsweek, Slate, Chicago Tribune, etc. In addition to publishing and teaching, I also enjoy consulting with technology firms.
