Request for participation - Black Americans' experiences with workplace incivility
I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Isenberg School of Management and also a graduate of the Teaching for Social Justice and Diversity certificate program at UMass. I am writing my dissertation on incivility in the workplace as it is experienced by Black Americans. Incivility has been defined as seemingly minor, negative comments or behaviors directed at an individual. Examples of incivility include things such as interrupting, speaking in a condescending tone, questioning one’s ability, ignoring or minimizing an individual’s contribution, etc. Such rude and discourteous behaviors at work can have detrimental effects on the individuals who are the targets. It has been suggested that incivility may, in some instances, be an indication of racism in the workplace. Yet, research on the relationship between race and incivility has been lacking.
The goal of my research is to explore the relationship between racism and workplace incivility. I am specifically interested in how Black Americans experience incivility and how these experiences may differ from the current conceptualization of workplace incivility which has been primarily focused on how White American’s identify and define these negative interactions. To better understand the nature of incivility, I will be conducting individual interviews and focus groups to hear about the actual experiences of Black Americans who have encountered these negative interactions in the workplace.
If you, or someone you know, are interested in participating in a 30- 45 minute interview or a focus group (date and time will be determined based on participant’s availability), or would simply like to learn more about the project, please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>. I am specifically hoping to interview full- or part-time working professionals. Note that this research has been approved by the Human Subjects Internal Review Board (IRB) and that all information that is collected will be completely confidential.
I hope you will consider participating and/or re-posting. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

One of the ways that authors and their books get into circulation in libraries, classrooms, on the desks of book critics at the New York Times, and other useful places, is via the complex, often shrouded, world of professional arts. Part of the reason you go to a residency at MacDowell is to…
Hey, just taking a moment to plug the Authors of Color blog - moderated by some exciting new folks - including Tayari Jones (author of Silver Sparrow and Leaving Atlanta, to name a few), StrugglingtoBeHeard and So-Treu(digital feminists of black twitter and tumblr fame), and a few us other relatively nameless bloggers who write and sometimes even publish works of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry.
