Overview

Based on the author’s analysis of in-depth interviews and relevant research literature, this booki nvestigates and explores the experiences, problems and pressures faced by black and ethnic minority women managers in the United Kingdom. To date, research addressing the issues of black managers has been almost exclusively American, predominantly black African-Americans, and the overall amount of published research has been limited. Indeed, studies of black and ethnic minority professional women, especially in corporate settings, have been virtually excluded from the growing body of research on women in management. This book has been written to fill this gap.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'By emphasising how the employment of black and ethnic minority women would serve to benefit the organization, this book is an excellent stimulant for such organizations to start recruiting

more of them. It conveys the same message on every page....The birth of this publication should be treasured and reserved a much-deserved space on the

bookshelves of academia as it succeeds to fill the gap in the growing body of literature about women in management. The fact that it is not flooded with technical jargon enhances its popularity with practitioners who need some encouragement when the going gets tough!' - Women in Management Review

'This book is an important text, offering significant insight into the unique problems, pressures and barriers faced by black and ethnic minority women managers. Its strength lies in the author’s success in portraying the complex ways in which the double bind of racism and sexism conditions the work, family, personal and community experiences of these women in ways that are often invisible to those of us that do not live in a bicultural world' -

International Review of Women and Leadership

'You’ll find very few black and ethnic minority women managers, especially at middle and higher management levels. A recently published book on this subject explores the difficulties they face and makes recommendations on how to improve matters' - Skills and Enterprise Update

'The book provides worthwhile synopses of many important issues associated with the experiences of black and ethnic minority women managers' - Journal of Applied Management Studies
