Workplace Bullying and the Racially Diverse Urban Context: Implications for Adult Education
Altman, Brian A.
Multicultural Learning and Teaching, v4 n1 p36-44 Aug 2009
From the perspective of the racial diversity of the urban environment (Daley, Fisher, & Martin, 2000), a literature review was conducted to explore how race connects to the issue of workplace bullying. Results of the literature review suggest that there are multiple points of view regarding whether workplace bullying includes or is separate from mistreatment based on race. Based on few available empirical studies, if one includes both bullying perceived to be based on race and bullying not perceived to be, it appears that members of racial minority groups may experience more workplace bullying than Whites. Adult educators should address workplace bullying and its racial dynamics in their practice.
