Juliette Alban-Metcalfe gives her insight into the challenges of career progression for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) leaders, and how to overcome them. Drawing from a wide range of published research and 20 years of professional experience, she describes the current representation of BAME leaders in senior roles, the range of issues that can emerge for BAME leaders as they try to progress their careers, as well as what leaders and their organisations can do to level the playing field for mutual benefit.
The Psychology of Ethnicity in Organisations contains contributions from key scholars who are working professionals in the field, ensuring that a variety of views and topics are covered with sufficient clarity and depth. The book delves into the psychological experiences of ethnic identity in the workplace, and presents a comprehensive, evidence-based analysis of the continued under-representation of Black Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) individuals within the employment and management structures of UK organisations. With insightful case studies detailing both the BAME employee perspective and the institutional practices that govern it, Psychology of Ethnicity in Organisations explores not only the theory behind behaviour but the social and political reality of its lived experience. The book considers a wide breadth of topical issues, including the role of diversity in enhancing organisational performance, the effects of discrimination and bias in hiring practices as well as approaches to achieve progress on improving the experiences of BAME employees.
It is an invaluable guide to progressive organisational management and an essential supplementary learning resource for those studying human resource management (HRM), organisational behaviour (OB), and psychology, as well as management and leadership courses, HR professionals desiring to make strategic hiring practices, organisations looking to make the management of ethnic diversity an overt focus in their business development and BAME employees and professionals looking to develop and progress in their careers.
