Abstract

This paper reports on continuing work on ethnicity and gender in the institutional contexts of the U.K. Accounting professions. The paper explores issues of masculine identity, within a highly masculine-gendered organisational context, and in particular the ways in which ethnic male identities are created, sustained and damaged. We argue that men from ethnic minority backgrounds suffer particular conflicts and exclusions. The research finds different conceptions of masculinity by ethnic background, with different work experiences and careers for those from minority ethnic categories.
