Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject Business economics - Personnel and Organisation, grade: 1,7, Helmut Schmidt University - University of the Federal Armed Forces Hamburg, course: Management of Human Ressources II, language: English, abstract: This study will at first take a look at the historical background especially emphasizing on the Civil Rights Movement which is an essential period for the African American people. Besides the bills which were passed during this period we also want to focus on the current legal situation concerning the discrimination of certain ethnic groups. In the second part we want to analyze the current labor market situation. How was the development of employment rates of the main ethnic groups in the last years and what is the current situation? Furthermore we have to take a look at the average income of the employees especially analyzing the differences between the main ethnic groups in the USA. In the last part of this chapter we will discuss the discrimination of the ethnic minorities concerning the access to executive positions. The last part of our study concentrates on the analysis of a certain organization to illustrate how diversity management can actually look like in practice. In this connection we will firstly analyze to what extent diversity management is spread in the USA and secondly have a look at the implementation of diversity management in the organizations of IBM and Google. Here we want to especially prioritize the African Americans. Finally we will draw a conclusion and refer to our hypothesis to proof which aspects of our hypothesis were shown to be true and which aspects were disproved. On the basis of this analysis we will see where academic voids have to be closed and where future academic projects have to put their emphasis.
