A comparison of the perceptions about organizational fit of white female, African-American, and Hispanic managers to those of white male managers revealed that African-American managers reported achieving significantly poorer organizational fit compared to other subgroups. However, race and sex explained a relatively small amount of the variance in perceived fit. Poor organizational fit was associated with job dissatisfaction, intentions to leave, and greater levels of stress. The results suggest that more research is needed to explicate the differences in organizational experiences faced by female and minority managers (e.g., African-Americans and Hispanics) and those faced by white male managers. © 1996 JAI Press Inc.
