She was the first woman tenured in the Department of City and Regional Planning. Among other courses, she taught "International Institutions", "Public and Spatial Economics" and "Globalization and Development." At Cornell, at various times, she directed the Latin American Studies Program, the Gender and Global Change Program and the International Studies Program. She has been a visiting faculty member or guest lecturer at Columbia University, Rutgers University, the New School University and other universities in the United States and in Spain.
Benería's work and publications have focused on issues related to labor and the informal economy, women's work, gender and development, globalization, and Latin American development.

Parallel to her academic work, Beneria has been involved in activities of international organizations such as the International Labor Organization (ILO), United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM), and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). She was part of a team of international observers in Nicaragua for their elections in 1990. She served on the International Advisory Committee for the UNIFEM report on World's Women's Progress/2000; was a member of the International Advisory Board for the ILO's Global Programme on Socioeconomic Security (2000–04); and, was a member of UNDP's Directory of Appointed Experts on Poverty in Latin America and the Caribbean.
