Center for 'Race' Colloquia Series: Out of the Workgroup: Immigrant Workers and Workplace Ostracism

Myia Williams (Center of Health Innovations and Outcomes Research, Northwell Health) and Cong Liu (Department of Psychology) will discuss “Out of the Workgroup: Immigrant Workers and Workplace Ostracism.”

A majority of workplace ostracism research focused on the consequences, while only a small stream has tried to understand the antecedents of ostracism. To achieve an inclusive workforce, it is important to examine the antecedents of workplace ostracism experienced by immigrant workers. In this presentation we will present findings on a research study that examined the relationship between acculturation demands (stressors in the working environment), workplace ostracism, and employee outcomes among immigrant workers in the United States.  The results of this research study are timely as it provides useful insights into the interpersonal experiences of immigrant employees in the US workforce. This presentation will help raise awareness of the challenges faced by immigrants in an American workforce. Practical implications as well as theoretical contributions of the findings are discussed.
