peace and hotep,
discipleofthenile, first, it began as a study of 'colorism' in the workplace but the study was not conducted in any workplace. the respondants were not employer or human resource manager. labor law does exist. eeoc is a regulator commission.
240 undergrad students at the University of Georgia.......da real world.
"Matthew Harrison, a doctoral student at the University of Georgia, presented his research today at the 66th annual meeting of the Academy of Management in Atlanta. Along with his faculty supervisor, Kecia Thomas, a professor of applied psychology and acting director of UGA's Institute for African American Studies, Harrison undertook the first significant study of "colorism" in the American workplace."
"While the respondents in this study were University of Georgia students, we think we would find the same response no matter where such a study was done in the country," said Thomas. "When you consider that probably no more than 1 percent of industrial and organizational psychologists are black, you can see why a study like this just hasn't been done before regarding colorism in the workplace. There are real-world consequences to these issues."
