Founded in 1974, the American Association for Affirmative Action (AAAA) is a national not-for-profit association of professionals working in the areas of affirmative action, equal opportunity, and diversity.. We help our members to be more successful and productive in their careers.. We promote understanding and advocacy of affirmative action to enhance access and equality in employment, economic and educational opportunities.. AAAA Goals.. Foster effective affirmative action/equal opportunity programs nationwide.. Establish and maintain ethical standards for the profession.. Liaison with federal, state and local agencies involved with equal opportunity compliance in employment and education.. Promote the professional growth and development of our members.. Sponsor education and training programs.. Sponsor and conduct research.. AAAA Position Paper.. The American Association for Affirmative Action (AAAA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of affirmative action as an instrument to fulfill the nation’s promise of equal opportunity.. Its mission is to nurture understanding of and offer advice on affirmative action to enhance access and equity in employment, economic and educational opportunities.. The Association is composed of individuals and organizations from the public and private sectors, business, social service, legal, government, and education.. Founded in 1974, the Association provides training and educational programs to promote the professional growth and development of its 2,000 individual and corporate members.. Civil rights laws were enacted to redress both systemic and individual discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age or disability.. The Association is committed to eradicating all forms of invidious discrimination.. The American Association for Affirmative Action strongly opposes federal or state action that would eliminate affirmative action programs that provide equal access and equity for minorities and women in employment, education and economic opportunity.. The AAAA opposed legislation designed to mutilate Executive Order 11246, eliminate affirmative action and impede the implementation of court orders aimed at enforcing equal opportunities for protected classes of persons.. Executive Order 11246, as amended, section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and the Vietnam Era Veterans’  ...   an effective force to help all Americans rise as far as their talents and determination can take them.. The Association supports the use of affirmative action to ensure inclusion in employment, educational admissions and the development of business opportunities.. Affirmative action programs, properly designed and implemented, strengthen the national community, promote its economic well being, and maximize the benefits of our great diversity.. Affirmative action is good for business.. A 1993 study rated the performance of Standard and Poors 500 on a series of factors relating to the hiring and advancement of minorities and women.. The stock market performance of companies that were high performers in these areas was 24 times higher than firms that did not value their diverse work forces.. Edwin L.. Artzt, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of The Proctor Gamble Company, stated on accepting the Private Sector Leadership Award from the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights: Discrimination is not solely responsible for the lack of minorities and women in the corporate world; however, the continuing effects of past discrimination limited education, job and business opportunity for individuals and groups.. The AAAA firmly believes that affirmative action is a policy that must be maintained to assure that the progress made by women, ethnic minorities and people with disabilities is preserved.. It is a policy that will allow the youth of this country to inherit a future where equality and fairness is a part of being an American.. The Association commits to utilizing all available resources in responding to the unprecedented assault on affirmative action.. The Association will not accept retreat from the full range of programs needed to guarantee fairness and opportunity in employment, business, and education for ethnic minorities, women and people with disabilities.. The Association pledges to work with other like-minded individuals and organizations to ensure that affirmative action principles, programs and activities continue as national policy.. The American Association for Affirmative Action urges every American to support vigorously a national commitment to affirmative action..
