Abstract

Following the murder of George Floyd, and subsequent Black Lives Matters protests, resounding calls for the deconstruction of systemic inequalities across all areas of education and psychology remain loud and clear. However, despite the well-known influence of race and gender on inequities in psychological and educational institutions, ‘gendered racism’ continues to be untheorized.
Grounded theory (GT) is an analytical framework that provides systematic guidelines for generating a theory. This paper offers a worked example of constructivist grounded theory (CGT) in relation to 10 Black female managers in children and young people’s services (CYPS). The objective was to examine whether institutional practices support and enable inequality. Findings suggest that despite practicable challenges, CGT is an effective method for documenting the views of marginalised women who experience gender-based disparities within the higher echelons of CYPS workforces.
