Currently, an underrepresentation of Hispanics/Latinx leaders exists in U.S. organizations. With the current trend of diversity, it is an issue that can impact many aspects of the United States in negative ways. With the current researchers concluding racism, stereotyping, and biases is the reason for the underrepresentation it becomes difficult to fix any issues in managing a diverse workforce brings. From organizations to society and even the population in question more representation of ethnic minorities such as Hispanics/Latinx people can help remedy many areas of the U.S. society. This is especially true for organizations as more representation of ethnic minorities such as Hispanics/Latinx people can assist in helping organizations adapt to the current trends of diversity. For this reason, the proposed research is being conducted. By interviewing both Hispanic/Latinx leaders and Hispanic/Latinx non-leaders variables can be identified that will show why some ethnic minority leaders obtain such positions and why some do not. Moving from strictly studying racism, discrimination, and stereotyping as the reason for
such underrepresentation. The questions asked to the 20 participants with a master’s degree will help give more insight into the issue. These twenty-three questions are designed to extract the professional experiences form the Hispanic/Latinx respondents. Further assisting organizations, research, and society in gaining new knowledge on
diversity management. The interviews revealed many variables that can assist all minority groups and females in finding new ways to excel in their professions. The results from this research should be used to create a quantitative study that will help further the knowledge of diversity in the workforce. It should also be used to develop leaders that can help organizations adapt to the trend of diversity in U.S. organization.
