Drawing on theories of whiteness, stigma, identity formation and identity work, this monograph aims to explore the ways in which racial categories continue to structure the lives of professionals of colour in South Africa. Using a Bourdieusian lens, it draws on personal narratives of professionals in the fields of accounting, engineering and industrial psychology, examining how stigma and whiteness continue to constrain their identity development in the public, professional and personal spaces they inhabit.

Examining the unique post-Apartheid situation of South Africa, this book will be valuable reading to scholars interested in the intersection of race, professions and organisation.
