  • Abstract

    The different cultures that exists, and that is anticipated to continue to flourish in contemporary United States society gives credence to the generally held notion that America is a “melting pot” of ethnic cultures from different parts of the World. Corporations in the US must embrace a diversity program that will be beneficial not only to their entity, but to their employees, and the community at large. Regardless of gender or race, employees are generally in favor of a diversity program that enable them to display their abilities and skills, which they hope will eventually lead to promotion to higher management and break the so called glass ceilings in today’s organizations.
