Impact of Racial Identity
Fors Marsh Group recently chaired a session titled “Race Still Matters: The Impact of Racial Identity on Organizational Attraction and Perceived Racial Discrimination” at the 25th Annual Conference of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP). With the election of the nation’s first black president, some have suggested that racial discrimination is a thing of the past.
This session will highlight the significant role race continues to play in the American workplace. Specifically, three empirical studies will be presented examining the nature, prevalence, and impact of racial identity on perceptions of organizational attraction and perceived racial discrimination. Suggestions and ideas for overcoming these challenges and their implications for organizational recruitment and retention will be discussed.
