Affirmative Action Plan {AAP}

Affirmative Action is a step taken by businesses and the government to spread equality in employment and increase job opportunities for each individual who belongs to an underrepresented part of the community.

An affirmative Action Plan is a management tool used to create equal job opportunities for all sets of employees and applicants. This tool consists of some specific results-oriented processes to ensure equal job opportunities. The Affirmative Action plan came into existence to equalize the discrimination against protected classes.

The policy focuses on demographics who have historically had low representation in positions of leadership, professional roles, and academics. It is often considered a means of countering historical discrimination against particular groups.
