Abstract : Barriers to equal occupational opportunities for minorities are examined at three stages of the employment process: the job candidate stage, the job entry stage, and the job promotional stage. Using the authors' recent survey of 4078 employers covering a nationally representative sample of jobs, four types of exclusionary barriers are investigated: 'segregated networks' at the candidate stage, 'information bias' and 'statistical discrimination; at the entry stage and 'closed internal markets; at the promotion stage. Practical implications are drawn for equal employment opportunity policies directed toward occupational processes and employment outcomes. Keywords: Organization equity; Affirmative action; Race relations; Career mobility.
