Remote Work, Work-Life Conflict, and Belonging in Silicon Valley

Awarded Scholars:
Sigrid Luhr, University of Illinois at Chicago
Project Date:
Jan 2023
Award Amount:

In recent years, technology companies have grappled with the underrepresentation of Black, Latinx, and women workers. Research has shown that women and people of color face specific organizational barriers in the tech industry. Sociologist Sigrid Luhr will examine how the transition to remote work at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic affected experiences of work-life conflict and whether these experiences vary by race, gender, and parental status. She will conduct 120 longitudinal in-depth interviews for her study.
