Who Benefits from Affirmative Action Policies?
Affirmative action benefits everyone, either directly or indirectly.
- Affirmative action programs led to the establishment of clear norms by employers, giving all workers equal access to jobs, promotions, and training.
- Affirmative action policies have resulted in increases in the representation of women and minorities across all levels of employment in the United States and within organizations that were once exclusively non-minority males.
- Affirmative action expands the talent pool for jobs and creates a more diverse work environment.
