Networking Characteristics of African-American Managers: Empirical Validation and Training Applications.
Brutus, Stephane; Livers, Ancella
International Journal of Training and Development, v4 n4 p287-94 Dec 2000
Networking characteristics and performance information from multiple raters were collected for 140 African-American and 45 white managers. Informal networks of high-performing African-Americans were composed of higher proportions of African-Americans than those of lower-performing counterparts. Leadership training should consider the concepts of homophily and pluralism in addressing network development. (SK)
