How does Perceived Discrimination Affect Latinas’ Subjective Career Success? The Mediating Roles of Increased Work-Family Conflict and Decreased Organizational Commitment
This study investigated the relationships between perceived discrimination, work-to-family conflict, organizational commitment, and subjective career success of 518 Latina business professionals. Specifically, the current study tested and found support for a serial mediation model whereby perceived discrimination increased work-to-family conflict which then decreased organizational commitment; ultimately having the effect of decreasing subjective career success. The two mediators explained 79% of the relationship between perceived discrimination and subjective career success. Additionally, the overall model explained 10% of the variance in subjective career success. These findings help to identify mechanisms that undermine Latina Professionals’ perceptions of career success as a result of perceived discrimination.
