UMN Sociology PhD Candidate Aimzhan Iztayeva will present, "Custodial Single Fathers and Employment Discrimination: Penalized or Protected?"

Aimzhan's dissertation examines employment discrimination against custodial single fathers in the U.S. using a mixed-method approach: a survey experiment with hiring managers and in-depth interviews with single fathers in the Midwest. More broadly, Aimzhan is interested in work-family reconciliation, unpaid care work, and how the "ideal worker" norm affects caregivers' experiences in the labor market.
