"It's about time someone took a serious, research-based look at what's going on with minority executives in corporate America. Thomas and Gabarro have produced a thoroughly documented, carefully reasoned work that deals frankly and effectively with the issue of race and managerial progress. This book is a must read for anyone serious about breaking through." (Morgan McCall, Professor of Management and Organization, Marshall School of Business, University of Southern California and author of High Flyers: Developing the Next Generation of Leaders) "In this exciting, remarkably nuanced analysis, Thomas and Gabarro demonstrate how to create productive and equitable organizations in which all employees can flourish-a necessity for the diverse needs of the twenty-first century." (Lotte Bailyn, T Wilson (1953) Professor of Management, MIT Sloan School of Management, and author of Breaking the Mold: Women, Men, and Time in the New Corporate World) "Breaking Through sheds light on the obstacles that minorities face in corporate America and, through engaging real-life stories, provides invaluable advice for overcoming them. Thomas and Gabarro offer proven guidelines for individuals and corporations that seek to advance the contributions of minorities in the workplace." -George Herrera, President and CEO, The United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce "Breaking Through provides clear insight into the issues confronting minorities in their pursuit of the executive suite. Real world examples coupled with keen analysis powerfully illustrate the obstacles to advancement. The minority executives profiled in these pages should be thanked for enriching this book with their stories." -David Hinds, Managing Director, Bankers Trust, and former President of the Executive Leadership Council "Breaking Through is a brilliant exploration of the ways that organizational diversity does and does not work.
