African American Career Aspirations: Examining the Relative Influence of Internalized Racism
Brown, Danice L.; Segrist, Daniel
Journal of Career Development, v43 n2 p177-189 Apr 2016
The present study examined the relative influence of aspects of internalized racism on the career aspirations of a sample of African American adults. Participants (N = 315), ranging in age from 18 to 62 years, completed measures of internalized racism and career aspirations online. A hierarchical multiple regression analysis was conducted to examine the relative influence of internalized racism. Regression results indicated that participants who devalued and dismissed an African worldview and its themes had lower career aspirations.
