How They Made It to the Top

The Chronicle of Higher Education

David A. Thomas wrote the book on how to get an executive-level job if you’re an African-American man. Mr. Thomas is dean of the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University. Earlier in his career, he spent four years at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, followed by 21 years at Harvard Business School as a professor and associate dean. He holds a Ph.D. in organizational psychology from Yale University.
As he built that career, Mr. Thomas had a template to follow: his own research. His 1999 book, Breaking Through: The Making of Minority Executives in Corporate America, written with John J. Gabarro, compared the trajectories of minority employees with those of white employees, looking for differences in success patterns and other factors that help make or break careers.
