Which foot first: diversity management and affirmative action in Brazilian business

Abstract: This paper discusses the relative importance of diversity management programs and government initiatives in reducing job access inequalities. It contrasts the affirmative action-0diversity management process in the USA with that of Brazil, where racial inequality has remained extremely persistent. Using the relational framework (Syed; Özbilgin, 2009) it examines how Brazilian banks are dealing with diversity and affirmative action following initiatives from the Federal Public Prosecutor’s Office for Labor.

“…Anti-racist scholar-activists use materials capable of overturning racial logics centring whiteness – critical theory, political dialogue, visual, musical, poetic and performed art, Indigenous feminist medicine, ancestral non-European knowledge. This endeavour is locally contextualised, and as we write and organise from the Global North/West, we do so in dialogue with colleagues in the Global South/East who confront different conditions of racism, racialisation and the hegemony of white supremacy (da Conceição and Spink, 2013; Mandiola, 2013).…”

“…O alinhamento com a lógica empresarial tornaria essas iniciativas também mais "orgânicas" e efetivas na criação de um ambiente organizacional favorável à diferença (Hanashiro & Carvalho, 2005). Em segundo lugar, a gestão da diversidade permitiria atenuar as desvantagens e ampliar as vantagens de equipes diversas (Conceição & Spink, 2013;Prügl, 2011), tornando-se ainda mais crucial em um contexto globalizado e competitivo no qual a homogeneidade entre trabalhadores/as não seria mais uma opção para as empresas. Assiste-se, assim, a uma virada nos discursos sobre diversidade e gestão: não se tratava mais de uma questão de justiça social, mas de sobrevivência empresarial (Thomas, 1990).…”

“…A gestão da diversidade foi incorporada no Brasil nos anos 1990, trazida principalmente por subsidiárias de multinacionais norte-americanas (Fleury, 2000;Hanashiro & Carvalho, 2005). No entanto, a proposta nunca decolou em solo nacional (Conceição & Spink, 2013;Santos, Rodrigues, Dutra, & Costa, 2008). Levantamento desenvolvido pelo Instituto Ethos (2016) mostra que, entre as 500 maiores empresas no País, apenas 28% desenvolvem iniciativas para incentivar a participação de mulheres, 12% para pessoas negras e 9% para aquelas com acima de 45 anos, sendo a maior parte dessas ações pontual.…”

“…Their findings showed that weak labor market institutions, high unemployment and common discrimination with division by ethnicity are the underlying reasons that rendered legislation ineffective. A number of other studies have also proven the relevance and utility of the relational framework to study workforce diversity management in the Middle East and North Africa (Daya, 2014; Hennekam et al , 2017), Bosnia and Herzegovina (Bešić and Hirt, 2016), BRICS nations (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) (Nkomo et al , 2015), Pakistan (Ayub and Jehn, 2010), Brazil (da Conceição and Spink, 2013), Afghanistan (Mujtaba, 2013), Australia (Kramar, 2012), New Zealand (Pringle and Ryan, 2015), UAE (Forstenlechner et al , 2012), Germany (Vassilopoulou, 2011) and Poland (Rakowska, 2019).…”
