Black Families in Corporate America


Volume: 11

March 1998 | 208 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
What progress have African Americans made in corporate America? This book examines the evidence by drawing on studies of almost 200 black corporate managers and their families. A past president of the New York State Council on Family Relations, author Susan D. Toliver, shows that black families have progressed in corporate America, but the inroads are uneven. Toliver takes a penetrating look at how the cultural identity of black families has been influenced by their participation in corporate America. She also suggests that corporations deepen their commitment to cultural diversity, not in name onlyùbut work to emphasize the talents and develop the strengths of the African American community. Black Families in Corporate America explores the following areas: + Shifting gender dynamics within the families of black managers + Changes in approaches to parenting + Issues of racial identity within corporations and the professional black community Black Families in Corporate America will appeal to scholars in ethnic studies, multicultural counseling, family theory, sociology, social work, personnel management, organizational development, and cross-cultural psychology.
