Cecilia L. Ridgeway

Lucie Stern Professor in the Social Sciences, Stanford University

Ridgeway will investigate the ways that social status functions as a de facto system of inequality and how this system is related larger structures of inequality. She will analyze a broad range of empirical evidence to understand how status matters to people and how hierarchies are formed. She will also study how these processes help transform group differences based on power or resources into systems of inequality based on gender, race, and class.
