If Shell decided to keep the no diversity policy in the TMT despite all the efforts to encourage diversity mindset of the managers, to promote supportive environments and to provide guidelines for hiring and promotions, minority employees would start to lose confidence in the D&I initiatives seeing that there was still a barrier between them and positions in the upper echelon. Voser, however, might be able to defend his choice of the composition of TMT that there were not enough qualified managers with minority status at the senior level (Sucher & Corsi, 2012, p. 11).

I think it is great that were looking at all different types of diversity instead just focusing on particular subject like race. Often times, since being college student and being so busy with my life, I tend to forget how important income, education and political diversity can be in the world. Seeing world with a different lens for once really made me think about not being so quick to judge people, we all have our own story and beliefs.

In Stephanie’s presentation, I learned that it is important to embrace diversity in the workplace because not only does it bring change but it brings something special to a company and help one progress in life.

In the Yale Law Journal: Plea Bargain as Disaster , author Schulhofer explains the disadvantages of the plea-bargaining process. The article is focused around the concept of separating the innocent from the guilty. Schulhofer recognizes that abolishing this process would only cause more problems for the system, so instead he analyzes how reforming the process would be more beneficial to both the system and the public. It is important to consider reforming the process in terms of system because there would be a clearer idea of what crimes are permitted to have pleas and which are
After viewing this video, change needs to occur. Ultimately, it will take individuals from every level to make this a reality. Cultural differences need to be respected, but these differences do not make it okay for humans to work under unethical standards.

Interdependency is not going to go away, but we need to figure out how to work with each other while supplying ethical treatment to everyone

Leaders are able to send a powerful message when they can demonstrate a commitment to diversity and inclusion that goes beyond rhetoric. In order to find leaders who are a part of the diversity movement, you have to find companies that have the reputations for successfully influencing diversity. When you find those companies and leaders, you then have to assess the leaders progress by examining leadership attitudes, employment statistics, and third-party recognition. Cultural differences should also be taken into account when assessing companies and their leaders about diversity.
To this concern, I would say that arguments are a natural part of working with other people.

However, interns have to understand that they do not get to choose who they work with.

It should be noted that these are not reasons to avoid diversity, but rather, factors to keep in mind as society heads toward a more diverse future. These are the main problems opposing against the strengths, because language barriers would make governments around the world require the prospective immigrants learn their country’s official language.
