The legal and philosophical doctrine of affirmative action are closely intertwined with the origins of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the civil rights movement. Numerous cases combating its existence have risen following its implementation. The effects of affirmative action within the workplace were measured based on women and minorities positions of leadership within the public and private sector. Results found that neither sector has been able to positively implement affirmative action. Furthermore, the switch from affirmative action to diversity initiatives was offset for many reasons including the positive correlation to profits in private companies. Still diversity programs have failed to create opportunities for upward mobility within minority groups.
