When Career Advice Is Coming From Non-white Employees, Everyone Benefits

A DiversityInc Best Practices reader survey found that:

• Non-whites are 43% more likely to report having little or no support in their careers than whites.

• College-educated non-whites are less likely to have someone they can ask for career advice than college-educated whites.

• More than a third of all respondents report they are not getting good advice and almost all report they could use more.

• Career advice is something all employees value & non-whites feel strongly about receiving career advice from individuals who look like them, while whites feel the opposite.
