The Dilemma of Hiring Minorities and Conservative Resistance: The Diversity Game
Antwi-Boasiako, Kwame Badu
Journal of Instructional Psychology, v35 n3 p225-231 Sep 2008
This paper defines affirmative action in the context of hiring practices in educational institutions and the public sector. It discusses discrimination, gender, equality, and conservative resistance to diversity programs. Cases are cited to illustrate the legal dilemmas of diversity in public and educational institutions. The monograph concludes that an honest debate between each camp would alleviate the fears of white resisters to, and minorities demand for, equality and diversity. (Contains 8 footnotes.)
