What is it about?
The purpose of the present study is to examine Indian-American women’s experience of work engagement and contributions of self-identity acceptance, mental health, and workplace diversity climate. We surveyed 99 Indian-American women who lived in the United States since the age of eight years old and who endorsed dual cultural identities as a South Asian American woman. The results show that self-identity acceptance is positively related to work engagement through mediation of mental health. Implications of these results for future research, theory, and practice are discussed toward understanding and enhancing Indian-American women's self-acceptance, mental health, and work engagement.

Why is it important?
Furthering the discussion of Asian Americans’ psychological well-being, the present study focuses on the unique experiences of Indian-American women’s identity-self acceptance and mental health as they contribute to their work engagement. The findings suggest that identity-self acceptance and mental health are key components that should be considered when promoting Indian-American women’s’ experience of work engagement.
