Hunter's Dr. Tamara Buckley publishes "The Color Bind: Talking (and Not Talking) about Race at Work"
Congratulation to Dr. Tamara R. Buckley, associate professor of counseling at Hunter College and psychology at The Graduate Center, City University of New York. Her new book, The Color Bind: Talking (and Not Talking) about Race at Work, has just been published by Russell Sage, (https://www.russellsage.org/publications/color-bind).
In the book, Buckley and her coauthor, Erica Gabrielle Foldy, associate professor of public and nonprofit management at New York University, examine the tension between accepted notions of colorblindness in the workplace and the reality of racial and ethnic differences.
Based on a two-and-a-half-year study of employees at a child welfare agency, The Color Bind shows how color cognizance-the practice of recognizing the profound impact of race and ethnicity on life experiences while affirming the importance of racial diversity-can help workers move beyond silence on the issue of race toward more inclusive workplace practices.
