Kimya Loder

Kimya Loder is a sociology PhD candidate interested in understanding how highly stigmatized groups build political power. She links models of organizational behavior to the theories of race, gender, and sexuality-based inequality offered by feminist and race scholars to examine the hierarchies that emerge as differently advantaged organizations compete for power, status, and resources. Her dissertation work is an ethnographic study of Black transgender-led organizations in the U.S. South. Kimya holds a BA in Sociology and a BA in International Studies from the historic Spelman College. In her free time, she enjoys watching movies, gardening, and designing digital content.
