What is Affirmative Action? What is the Civil Rights Act?

 

List at least 8 (eight) impacts of Affirmative Action and the Civil Rights Act on workplace diversity

Answer

 

Affirmative Action was an Executive Order (EO#11246) by President Johnson in 1965. It was not a law, but a set of expected actions designed to “right the wrongs” of past employment discriminations in the workplace. The Civil Rights Act was a social legislation passed into law in 1964 – Title IV prohibits discrimination in hiring, firing, compensation, apprenticeships, training, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment on the basis of race, religion, creed, sex, or national origin. 1) Both promote diversity, equal opportunity, and zero tolerance for discrimination in the workplace. 2) They promote the use of experiences of other cultures and nationalities in problem solving and decision making. 3) They promote equality and career advancement in the workplace. 4) A diverse workplace has allowed for growth and advancement. 5) They have provided job opportunities for all and strengthened the quest to bridge the wide gap in the social class. 6) They created the challenge of having to spend considerable time to accomodate workers of diverse backgrounds. 7) Enormous resources are needed for enforcement. 8) Cultural assimilation and the urge to conform have also increased the challenges posed by CRA and AA.
