"an important book on a critical and timely topic" -- BizEd magazineAdvance Praise for Race, Work, and Leadership:"A seminal compilation that quantitatively captures the experience of being and becoming a black leader in America. Let the much-needed conversations begin." -- Ann Fudge, retired Chairman and CEO, Young & Rubicam Brands"This book has the potential to change the entire narrative about the experience of black people. Never before has there been such a compilation of compelling and probing insights and data about how black people have navigated and still navigate the unique historical and contemporary barriers of the workplace." -- Katherine W. Phillips, Reuben Mark Professor of Organizational Character and Director, Bernstein Center for Leadership and Ethics, Columbia Business School"Race, Work, and Leadership reflects my story as an African American leader in both higher education and industry. Being 'both visible and invisible,' managing through 'contested authority' that threatens our legitimacy, and needing a strong sense of self and exceptional resilience is the reality for black leaders in America. This work suggests strategies for leading despite resistance and provides a balm for those of us who wonder 'is it only me?'" -- Linda S. Oubre, President, Whittier College"Roberts, Mayo, and Thomas bring together an impressive and interdisciplinary roster of experts who offer evidence-based insights into the breadth and richness of the black professional experience. Written from a scholarly perspective yet with important implications for practice, this book provides guidance for how we might drive meaningful change in organizations to enrich the career experiences of marginalized groups--particularly black leaders." -- Quinetta Roberson, Professor of Management, Villanova University"This compelling book sheds light on the challenges encountered by African American executives seeking to climb the corporate ladder. It should be required reading for senior executives who are serious about ensuring that their organizations can compete effectively for the best talent." -- Ken Frazier, Chairman and CEO, Merck
