Week 2 Discussion POL2076 American Government/ Affirmative Action
Submit your responses to the appropriate topic in this Discussion Area. Start reviewing and responding to your classmates as early in the week as possible. Be sure to be honest, clear, and concise. Always use constructive language, even in criticism, to work toward the goal of positive progress. Be sure to engage and reflect upon important text concepts and course notes within your responses.
In order for this to be a discussion, it is very important that we “converse” with one another by commenting on the other answers.
Important Note: Some of our material may be highly controversial, and while encouraging you to share your opinions, the facilitator has the right to step in if the discussion grows too contentious!! You may take issue with your classmates’ opinions, but at no time will this disintegrate into name-calling and personal slams. You are not here to change anyone’s mind, but rather to discuss, as rational educated adults, a multitude of issues.
You work in human resources in your organization and have been assigned the task of ensuring that your organization properly incorporates Affirmative Action policies into your hiring practices. Research Affirmative Action and prepare a 10-15 slide PowerPoint presentation outlining Affirmative Action and your plan to launch Affirmative Action policies within your organization.
Post your presentation to the Discussion Thread with a short introduction. Spend time reviewing other students’ presentations. Comment on at least 2 of your classmates’ presentations. Comment on differences in presentation, important talking points, sequencing of information, accuracy of content as well as overall creativity. Which presentation will be easier to present, monitor and enforce? Why?
Post your response to the Discussion Area by the due date assigned. Respond to at least two posts by the end of the week.
