Publisher's Summary

It's hard to be in the minority. If you're the only person from your ethnic or cultural background in your organization or team, you probably know the challenges of being misunderstood or marginalized. You might find yourself inadvertently overlooked or actively silenced. Even when a work environment is not blatantly racist or hostile, people of color often struggle to thrive - and may end up leaving the organization. 

Being a minority is not just about numbers. It's about understanding pain, power, and the impact of the past. Organizational consultant Adrian Pei describes key challenges ethnic minorities face in majority culture organizations. He unpacks how historical forces shape contemporary realities and what both minority and majority cultures need to know in order to work together fruitfully. 

If you're a cultural minority working in a majority-culture organization, or if you're a majority-culture supervisor of people from other backgrounds, learn the dynamics at work. Be encouraged that you can help make things better so all can flourish.
