ETHEL L. MICKEY, PH.D.

I am a Visiting Lecturer in Sociology at Wellesley College. In 2018, I graduated with a Ph.D. in Sociology from Northeastern University, with a Graduate Certificate in Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. I study gender, work and organizations, and social networks, with a focus on high-tech and STEM settings.

Read my latest article in Gender & Society: "When Gendered Logics Collide: Going Public and Restructuring in a High-Tech Organization."

RESEARCH

My research explores how professional networking shapes and reproduces intersectional inequalities in the high-tech industry. My work has been published in Gender & Society, Journal of Contemporary EthnographyFeminist Formations, and Aggression and Violent Behavior.

 

TEACHING

I teach courses that encourage students to approach complex questions of inequality from an intersectional lens. Given my own methodological preference for qualitative research, my courses focus on learning through doing, with students acquiring empirical research skills through interview projects and mini-ethnographies.

I work with organizations seeking to support underrepresented and marginalized workers in STEM. I am an inaugural Virtual Visiting Scholar with the Association for Women in Science (funded through the National Science Foundation), developing publicly available resources on the status of women faculty in STEM.

I am also an active member of the American Sociological Association and Sociologists for Women in Society.
