McGuire, Gail M.
Work and Occupations: An International Sociological Journal, v27 n4 p500-23 Nov 2000
A study of 1,150 employees (464 men, 682 women, 149 people of color) indicated that women and minorities who were not Asian, Black, or Latino had network members with significantly lower status because they held positions that limited access to powerful people. Structural rather than personal exclusion explained racial/ethnic and sex differences. (Contains 63 references.) (SK)
