Abstract : Racial, ethnic, and gender issues within America's work places still exist today and look to be more prominent early into the next century. Corporate America is attempting to address, in a new way, these issues in light of a growing minority and women representation in the U.S. work force. This new approach is called diversity management. America's Army is not immune to many of the same minority and women issues facing Corporate America. Accordingly, the new diversity initiatives merit the Army's serious attention and consideration for possible new Army leadership strategies for ensuring and enhancing an equal opportunity-based organization. An examination of the implications of diversity management for the U.S. Army will assist Army equal opportunity proponents and senior leadership in moving the organization to perhaps a more color-blind and gender neutral one.
