She believes that at a crucial moment in American democracy, the insights provided by social science thought leaders like Paluck are essential for reimagining American world leadership and ensuring economic opportunities for future generations.

In addition to being named an AAPSS fellow, she has received numerous other awards and honors throughout her career, including two Robert B.
