Affirmative action is an employer's total effort to ensure equal employment opportunities. This includes guarantees that minorities and women are employed at every organization level to which their abilities and career objectives entitle them to aspire. Prepared by members of the Personnel Management Association of Aztlan, this handbook is designed to communicate useful information about affirmative action programs (AAP) to employees, prospective employees, employers, educational institutions, governmental compliance agencies, local training centers, and communities. Numerous affirmative action programs and related legislation, key elements of Revised Order No. 4, effective AAP forms, and parts of successful affirmative action programs are given. The handbook is divided into 6 sections: (1) What Affirmative Action Means to Employers; (2) Government Compliance Agencies Are There to Help; (3) High Schools, Colleges, and Universities Are Available; (4) Manpower and Training Sources Are Essential; (5) Chicano Government Representatives Are Increasing; and (6) National Chicano Organizations Are Involved. A directory of governmental-industrial-educational-community agencies and representatives is also included. (Author/NQ)
