Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM.
From your email, I presume that
you are talking specifically
about women in management and
upper level positions. If yes,
you should contact Catalyst--an
organization that sort of operates
like a watchgroup to corporate
America with a specific focus
on women in senior positions.
They have produced a number
of studies on women in the workplace--including
how the workplace needs to change
in order to make room for all
women--with some studies focusing
specifically on women of color.
Also, there is a great article
from the Harvard Business
Review from Sept./Oct. 1996
about how there are three paradigms
that have shaped the business
world over the last 3-4 decades.
The first being about sheer
numbers (low positions and pay),
the second was about promoting
a few tokens and the third was
about promoting diverse groups
of people and forcing the workplace
to change rather than the people
to change. It's co-authored
by Robin Edy. If you send me
your address, I would send it
