Show Notes

Adia Wingfield is a Professor of Sociology at Washington University in St. Louis. Adia’s scholarship examines how and why racial and gender inequality persist in organizations. Her most recent book is, Flatlining: Race, Work, and Health Care in the New Economy, published by the University of California Press in 2019.

In this episode, we discuss the important contributions this book makes to sociology generally and to critical race and organizational studies. We also discuss the final decision in the Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard case, and in our, “I Know You Didn’t Ask Me But….” segment, we offer our humble opinions on Amber Guyger’s murder conviction in the death of Botham Shem Jean. Adia also reveals why her A-Side track pick is “Juice” by Lizzo while Corey and Leslie justify their B-Side pick of Prince and the Revolution’s “Baby I’m a Star.
