AOL News had a great article today on the strength of diversity, and how it has, is, and will reshape the American landscape from many perspectives including the workforce. From racial composition, multi-cultural backgrounds, immigration, and the suburbs, diversity is touching almost every aspect of our society. Money line from the article:
Large American companies are also increasingly led by people with roots in foreign countries, including 14 of the CEOs of the 2007 Fortune 100. Even corporate America — once the almost-exclusive reserve of native-born Anglo-Saxons — will become as post-ethnic as the larger society.
While I think there’s definitely much more work to be done in this regard, the article gives organizations and employers a good idea of what’s coming down the road in the not too distant future.
