Assistant Professor of Sociology, University of Arkansas
Christianne Corbett

Christianne studies status-based inequality focusing on gender and its intersection with race.  Her research identifies mechanisms at the interactional and organizational levels that contribute to contemporary gender and racial inequalities at the societal level. She has two central research streams. The first focuses on equity and inclusion in organizations, and the second investigates barriers to equity for lower-status groups in society more broadly. An important component of her research agenda is identifying ways to interrupt micro- and meso-level processes that uphold societal-level inequalities. 

Methodologically, Christianne analyzes survey data to identify overarching relationships and trends and uses experimental methods – including survey and field experiments – to isolate causal mechanisms. She also uses social network analyses to investigate the relationship between interpersonal environments and outcomes and conducts interviews to understand individuals’ experiences. Christianne earned her PhD in Sociology from Stanford University in 2023.
