Who benefits the most when affirmative action policies are implemented in the workplace? Affirmative action was designed to counter discrimination against women and underrepresented groups, but how effective has it been? In today’s podcast, we’ll talk about the history of affirmative action, and share stories of how it has affected the careers of women, people of color, and us. We’ll provide receipts on the truth behind the affirmative action myth.
