Williams was 111th President of the American Sociological Association (from 2019 to 2020).


In 2014, she received the Jessie Bernard Award “in recognition of scholarly work that has enlarged the horizons of sociology to encompass fully the role of women in society,"


Williams revisited the concept in a 2013 article, "The Glass Escalator, Revisited: Gender Inequality in Neoliberal Times, SWS Feminist Lecturer". Williams suggests that the concept be more attentive to issues of intersectionality and changing market forces.


She was Adams Centennial Professorship in Liberal Arts fellow at the University of Texas at Austin from 2006 to 2014, and was chair of the sociology department at the university from 2010 to 2014.


In her 1992 article, "The Glass Escalator: Hidden Advantages for Men in the "Female" Professions", Williams proposed the concept of the glass escalator. The glass escalator refers to the way men, namely heterosexual white men, are put on a fast track to advanced positions when entering primarily female-dominated professions. It is most present in "pink collar" professions, such as those in hands-on healthcare work or school teaching. Feminized care professions often pay lower wages than stereotypically male professions, but males experience a phenomenon in which they earn higher wages and have faster career mobility when they enter feminine careers. This idea is akin to the more well-known idea of the glass ceiling, which explains the reality that women face when they fail to advance in the workplace.


From 1988 to 1994, she was Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Texas at Austin. She was subsequently promoted to the position of Assistant Professor of Sociology at the university from 1994 to 1999. She was subsequently promoted to the position of Professor of Sociology at the university from 1999 to the present.


From 1986 to 1988, she was Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Oklahoma. In 1992, she was Visiting Professor of Social Policy at the University of Sydney, Australia.


In 1980, she received her Bachelor of Arts in sociology at the University of Oklahoma and was a member of Phi Beta Kappa. She received her Master of Arts in sociology in 1982 and her Ph.D. in sociology in 1986 at the University of California, Berkeley.
