In the last 50 years, women have made remarkable progress in assuming leadership and management positions traditionally held by men; more recently, minorities have joined the professional realm in increasing numbers - with profound implications for organisations. Nevertheless, the statistics still tell a discouraging story: women make up nearly 50 percent of the workforce, but only 16 percent of the senior positions in the U.S.A's 500 largest companies; for every dollar a white man earns, a black man earns 76 cents; in a recent survey, 70 percent of U.S. women cited lack of an influential mentor as a key obstacle to attaining business success. The business experts assembled here consider what is behind these statistics and what can be done to change the culture that creates them. Blending theory and practice, statistics and analysis, this three-volume set presents the latest research from the fields of management, sociology, psychology, law, and public policy to shed new light on gender and race/ethnicity in the workplace. The first volume details the corporate paths of women and minorities to date, highlighting continuing challenges. Volumes 2 and 3 tackle such issues as: socialisation and how it excludes women and minorities; the impact of affirmative action on practice and policy; sexual harassment; racial and gender stereotypes; work-life balance; and unwritten codes of power and influence. These volumes also showcase innovative practices in promoting diversity and leadership development. This set presents a unique collection of perspectives on the dynamics of race, ethnicity, and gender in the workplace, and considers how they both reflect and reinforce the culture at large.
