As cultural diversity is increasingly placed on the organization agenda, managers and policymakers need to learn more about the impact of Hispanics in the workplace. Little research exists on this issue, even though Hispanics are the fastest growing minority in the US and comprise a significant portion of the work force. This volume presents original contributions from key researchers on such critical issues as acculturation and bias, mentoring and support systems, employment discrimination, and the special issues faced by Chicana and Puerto Rican women workers.
