Managing Diversity In Organizations: Unit V Journal, Unit V Project, Unit VI Journal, Unit VI PowerPoint Presentation

Unit V Journal


Should workplace diversity be driven by balancing differences or by hiring and selecting the most qualified individual for the position? If you were creating a new position for your team, do you think the new position should be developed to the individual, or do you think an individual should be hired for the specific job requirements? Why?

Your journal entry must be at least 200 words. No references or citations are necessary.

Unit V Project


Gender and Work-Life Balance

Fig Technologies wants industry research on gender and work-life attitudes to present an overview of the position of project managers in two geographic areas. You will present this report in a two-page (excluding the title and reference pages) assessment of the position based on information available. In your report, be sure to address the issues below.

  • Analyze the demographics of gender in the workplace with regard to position, pay, and expectations.
  • Explain the advantages and disadvantages of flexible schedules and work responsibilities.
  • Determine the potential human resources benefits of offering child and elder care in the organization.
  • Explain work-life balances regarding achieving greater results for the organization.

Support your recommendation through the use of at least two sources, one of which can be the textbook. Content should be two to three pages in length. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations. All references and citations used must be in APA style.

Have some fun with the assignment. Use your creative thinking along with your critical thinking to include your perspective of the findings and how to address the issues.

Unit VI PowerPoint Presentation

10 slides not including the title or reference page 

Also look at the example and how the powerpoint should flow. 


The Fig Technologies Executive Leadership Council (ELC) has received several requests for transfer to the United States from nations of diminished tolerance. The ELC has asked you to develop a presentation briefly explaining the history of diversity-based legislation. In your presentation, describe the challenges of legislating diversity, and compare historical legislation of diverse populations to more recent diversity legislation. Also, explain how diversity legislation impacts ethnic, orientation, and gender groups as well as those of age, appearance, and perceived disability.

At least two additional resources should be used in addition to your textbook, one of which must come from the CSU Online Library. All sources should be cited and referenced properly using APA formatting. The presentation should consist of a title slide, a minimum of 10 slides of content, and a reference slide. Since this is a presentation, at least one slide should include a graphic or chart to present information.
