Intimate partner violence and its health impact

The widespread diversification of the American and global economy has given rise to unprecedented market development and economic opportunities. Consequently, minority groups have made giant steps in the workplace since the removal of segregationist and discriminatory laws in the United States (Holder et al. 2015). The tremendous transformation of the American workplace environment has been described as the feminization of the workplace and the changing complexion of the workforce. In spite of the increasing pace of diversification of the working population, persons of color still continue to be underrepresented both at the skills-based job positions and leadership levels in the American corporate society (Holder et al. 2015). This is especially true for the black women professionals, who constitute only one percent of the country’s corporate officials’ Black women form a significant component of a growing source of talent for the corporate America and have for a long time been considered in the middle-level management (Holder et al. 2015). Nonetheless, as they undergo career progression to the leadership status, they face numerous challenges. These problems pose obstructions to their ascension to corporate senior executive levels, and their eventual overall career advancements. Holder et al. (2015). mention racism as a crucial factor in explaining the underrepresentation of women of color in the workplace and the stressful experiences that they undergo as they try to improve their careers. A significant fraction of business firms in the United States also express hesitance to hire black women out of the widespread belief that they lack skills, leadership capabilities, savvy, and able to spearhead successful competition in the corporate society.
