From Backlash to the “Business Case”: The Role of Affirmative Action in Corporate Diversity Management Strategies

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Using in-depth interviews with diversity and human resource managers across the United States, I explore the role of Affirmative Action in current corporate diversity management strategies and practices. I find that while the business performance rationale for diversity management is prevalent, even among firms with Affirmative Action (AA) plans, firms differ in whether AA efforts are integrated or separate from diversity management. This integration impacts diversity goals. Additionally, I find that the recent move to define diversity as inclusive, rather than the traditional definition based on race or gender, impacts the policies and practices firms select as part of their diversity management strategy.
