Abstract

Minority women identify finances and maintaining cultural values as their most commonly experienced stressors at home and in the workplace. A before and after study of ethnic minority women in focus group sessions led by a trained ethnic minority facilitator examined how social and workplace supports, or lack thereof, impact on the individuals' ability to manage daily life. Creative, effective solutions to stressorswere identified by the participants. Outcomes were evaluated in termsof the impact of changes on the participants' coping styles in familyand work life. Results indicate that a large percentage of women in this study felt discriminated against based on their culture/race, however, this perceived discrimination decreased after the focus soups, The predominant stress management techniques were prayer and music. Family support was the most influential factor in decreasing stress. The family is a major source of support for the working women, acting as a buffer to workplace pressures.
