Megan Tobias Neely
Megan Tobias Neely is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Organization at Copenhagen Business School and an affiliate of Stanford University’s Women’s Leadership Innovation Lab. She studies gender, race, and social class inequality in the workplace and the labor force.
Her research examines rising economic inequality in the U.S. through the lens of gender, race, and class. She pursued sociology after working in financial services from 2007-2010. This experience inspired her to study the mechanisms that reproduce workplace inequality on Wall Street and how the financial sector perpetuates inequality in society at large.
Her work has been featured in The New York Times, TIME, Harvard Business Review, Reuters, The Boston Globe, Publishers Weekly, Politico, Jacobin, The New Republic, American Sociological Association's Work in Progress, Clayman Institute for Gender Research's Gender News, Economic Sociology and Political Economy, and the Bernard and Audre Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice's Human Rights Working Paper Series.
Her academic research is highly relevant to those in government, policy, and industry. She has been invited to present her work at the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development’s Overcoming Inequalities summit, Tax Justice Network conference, and TechCrunch Disrupt meeting.
From 2017-2019, she was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Clayman Institute for Gender Research at Stanford University. In 2017, she graduated with a PhD in sociology from the University of Texas at Austin
