Presenter Info

Phyllis Moen

Phyllis Moen, Ph.D. is Professor Emeritus at both the University of Minnesota (where she held a McKnight Chair in Sociology) and Cornell University (where she held the Ferris Family Chair in Life Course Studies).  Professor Moen investigates the human meanings of  social change in the form of transformations in work and life courses. This includes the uneven effects (by gender, race, class, and life stage) on workers of both organizational interventions, such as flexible or remote work, and macro-level historical forces, such as digitalization, an aging  workforce, and COVID-19. Her current scholarship is on the 4-day workweek.
