Diversity Issues and Practices at Work in San Antonio
Scott, Otis L., Jr.
Business Communication Quarterly, v70 n1 p82-87 2007
Texas has a proud history of being a multicultural state. Of its nearly 23 million residents (U.S. Census Bureau, 2006), none of its major racial or ethnic groups (Anglo, Hispanic, Black, American Indian, or Asian) constitutes a majority of the population. San Antonio, with a population of over 1.2 million, is the second-largest city in Texas, exceeded only by Houston (The Dallas Morning News, 2006), and a dominant city of the south Texas and border region. The city is often described as a unique mix of Mexican and American history and culture that attracts millions of tourists each year. San Antonio cherishes and celebrates its cultural mix. Yet, beyond this celebration of culture, companies and their human resource specialists must consider the implications of San Antonio's diversity for the functioning of their workplaces. In this article, the author addresses some of the challenges of diversity issues and practices at work in San Antonio. (Contains 1 note.)
