The tale of two cultures: Attitudes towards affirmative action in the United States and India

Gwendolyn M. Combs and Sucheta Nadkarni

Journal of World Business, 2005, vol. 40, issue 2, pages 158-171

Abstract: This study seeks to inform multinational corporations as they integrate domestic and international affirmative action policies and strategies. Improvement of these abilities can have important implications for human resource management and organizational productivity outcomes. To increase our understanding of the international perspectives of affirmative action, we examine employee perceptions of the structure of affirmative action plans in the United States and India. The differences in affirmative action plans implemented in these countries as well as country cultural differences offer interesting backdrops for examining cross-country differences in employee perceptions of affirmative action.
