A book edited by
Blanche Jackson Glimps (Tennessee State University, USA)

For release in the Advances in Religious and Cultural Studies (ARCS) Book Series 

ISSN: Pending
Propose a chapter for this book

The Advances in Religious and Cultural Studies (ARCS) book series brings together a collection of scholarly publications on topics pertaining to religious beliefs, culture, population studies, and sociology. Books published within this series are ideal for professionals, theorists, researchers, and students seeking the latest research on collective human behavior in terms of religion, social structure, and cultural identity and practice.

Introduction
Increasing, religious institutions and organizations have become highly visible nationally and internationally. With the increased visibility has come an awareness of the socio-cultural issues surrounding gender identity and females of color. Females of color at religious institutions and organizations are faced with multiple instances of marginality in their attempts to access the rewards and powers typically available to males or females from numerically dominant racial group. Religious institutions and organizations, whether predominately European or another race, would seem to offer an inclusive environment that manifest espoused Christian tenets. In such an environment all members would have an equal opportunity to belong and become self-actualized. Within predominately European based religious setting, males and sometimes females of European ancestry consistently find this to be true. Females of color face challenges at such institutions and organizations that are frequently unexpected and discouraging. Similarly, females of color who also are part of the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (GLBTQ) community have additional barriers to negotiate in religious institutions and organizations. This reality compounds the normally arduous professional journey and contributes to the scarcity of females of color in such settings and may cause members of the GLBTQ community to hide in plain sight.

This book looks to discuss and address the difficulties and challenges that females of color have faced in religious institutions and organizations. The editors seek chapters that address different aspects of professional life ranging from a sense of belonging, visibility, and the intersecting of multiple identities. Additionally, the book will explore authors’ experience including strategies employed to sustain them in what is often a hostile and alien environment. The editors seek recommendations intended to increase the presence of females of color in religious –based institutions and organizations.


Objective of the Book
This proposed publication intends to elucidate the impact of gender identity and “race” within religious-based institutions and organizations. Such an awareness; is timely given the 21st century attention to diversity and the important role religious institutions and organizations hold within local and global communities. Of equal importance, the book will serve as an essential reference source, building on the available literature on gender and diversity issues in religious-based settings and contexts in order to examine how females of color, including those who are GLBTQ, can be most effective and successful when employed at religious-based institutions and organizations. The fulfillment of these objectives by member of the GLBTQ community and women of color should also enable religious institutions and organizations to move from mere diversity to achieve equity.

Target Audience
The content of this book will be of interest to varied audiences. Policy makers, practitioners, academicians, researchers, government officials, and religious-based representatives should find this text useful in furthering their research related to gender and diversity issues in religious-based institutions and organizations. Advanced-level graduate students could use this book as a guide if it is their desire to enter the professoriate.

Institutions and organizations with offices devoted to diversity and equity could use this book to educate themselves, administrators, faculty, clients, and community partners about the importance, to effective organizational performance, of gender and diversity issues.

Women’s Studies courses at higher education institutions would find the text highly useful as a teaching tool as would courses on Educational Studies, Social Foundations of Education, and Sociology. The text would make a good guide for administrators in their deliberations on hiring, promoting, and mentoring females of color.

•	Historical role of religious-based institutions/organizations, females of color and the GLBTQ community
