Diversity Programs

Affirmative Action and Diversity Programs are a set of policies and practices within government or an organization that seek to increase their business partner representation for particular groups based upon race, nationality, gender, or other criteria which they consider under-represented. For instance, major corporations seek small business contracting partners; banks seek to increase their lending to minority owned businesses; and many organizations are eager to aide woman owned business expansion. Enacted by President Lyndon Johnson via the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and executive order in 1965, these initiatives have become mainstream by corporations and all levels of government.
