I read reviews on this book on the site and there it is written according to Braun, affirmative action has driven the operations of schools as well as organizations which rose in the wake of the policies. However, discrimination still occurs to a large extent, especially in hiring practices. From the report by Braun, most of the top management personnel in many organizations are males who are white, indicating discrimination against females as well as against people of color. Despite the efforts to incorporate affirmative action into hiring practices, glass ceilings are cited to be the most challenging barrier to implementation of non-discriminatory policies. Such barriers include the stereotyping of women and minority groups by men and lack of equal opportunities for men and women of color in hiring corporations. It is therefore critical that organizations create cultures that alienate such barriers but incorporate principles of affirmative action.
