    schema:reviewBody ""This book provides an authoritative account of ethnicity and gender in the workplace. It will be essential reading for scholars and policy makers concerned with inequalities, career and employment relations, but its distinction is to show how these factors intertwine in people's lives. It maps the nature of inequalities drawing on a range of international data sources, and provides an account of theoretical underpinning explanations. The intersectionality of ethnicity, gender and class is shown to be central to a full understanding of social processes in the workplace, the community and the family and in the ways in which racism and sexism are constructed and reproduced. The book provides an in-depth analysis of the role of the state, employers and trade unions in challenging inequalities in the workplace and it critically appraises their approaches to equal opportunities and diversity management. The book offers unique insights into the experience of black and minority ethnic women who work in a wide range of organizations and are active trade union members. The stories of the women interviewed for this research project are brought to life through their discussions of experiences of inclusion and exclusion from the workplace, the link between trade unions and their career development, and the crucial role of work, unions, communities and families in the women's lives."--Jacket." ;
