    New York City, NY Stephanie Wickouski No matter how successful a woman is, she never tires of learning from or meeting other successful women. Most black doctors, lawyers, journalists, and so on—those in white-collar positions that require specialized training and credentialing—work in environments where they are in the racial minority. Reublin and Richard G. Lotti Golden, Lower East Side c. Participants rated nonwhite managers and female managers as less effective when they hired a nonwhite or female job candidate instead of a white male candidate.

    The harsh reality discussed here highlights the importance of putting appropriate structures and processes in place to guarantee the fair evaluation of women and minorities. The organization has given me the opportunity to lead a chapter and give back to the community through education. She promoted the casualness of relationships between people and highlighted the trend of those of the opposite sex "becoming friends" [21] with her song You've Got a Friend. So what does this mean for black workers in professional environments?
