Imagine Ameritocracy

“Imagine a world in which hard work, effort, and motivation lead to success. Employment systems are true meritocracies. No one is held back by their race, national origin, or skin color. At last, decision-makers are colorblind.

Get ready to view the world as it is now, pre-meritocracy, through the lens of African American, Asian American, and Latino/a job candidates and employees who want to believe that the employment world is fair but discover and rediscover, daily, that it is not. You will see what it takes for these men and women to achieve just outcomes—what seems impossible, what works, and what might work in the future as we strive for a true A-meritocracy.”
