Examples of differences includes nationality, beliefs, disabilities, physical appearance, race, gender, age, educational background, sexual orientation, work experience and social and status. Diversity not only involves how people perceive themselves, but how they perceive others. These perceptions affect interactions. “For a wide assortment of employees to function effectively as an organization, human resource professionals need to deal effectively with issues such as communication, adaptability and change.” www.multiculturaladvantages.com/recruit/diversity. Companies that encourage diversity in the workplace inspire all of their employees to perform to their highest ability.
Jenieca Jansz TA: Niels Feuerhahn WMST-1000 November 9, 2010 “All Women Should be Feminists” The emotional, sexual, and psychological stereotyping of females begins when the doctor says, "It's a girl” (Chisholm, Shirley). Whether male or female it is evident that there are numerous differences between the two sexes. Men are often portrayed as dominant and providing while women are seen as nurturing, and sensitive. These differences ultimately lead to inequalities within society. Because women are sometimes stereotyped as the weaker sex, they become disadvantaged and don’t share many of the privileges men are given.
The reaction of the public, mainly the men is shown in the quotations of Source 2 and 3. When reading them we can see that many people felt intimidated by the women’s campaign which did not help them succeed in winning the vote. Although it should be noted that source 3 was from the Times which was against the votes for women; so it’s probably a bias source of information, due to the Times’ belief in the domestic role of women. But this is not important as it still spoke the truth about the unnecessary need of violence while campaigning for the votes for women which would soon be solved by the effort many put in during the WW1. Unlike Emmeline, I think WW1 helped people see beyond the women’s violent actions, and begin to see that women were ready to have the right to vote and be considered as able as men in many ways.
This put women at a disadvantage because they would not be able to pick up and move as easily as men. Wal-Mart would also waive minimum required qualifications to retain employees, a way of bypassing the promotion process. Wal-Mart pride itself on strong organizational culture that is based on respect for the individual, service to the customer, and strive for excellence. The company published letters praising individual employees for outstanding service. Wal-Mart managers public stated that women associates are paid less than men because they had to provide for their families.
However, women are taking on more and more leadership roles; society is being forced to reexamine the assumption of men being the only effective leaders. Research on gender differences in leadership has been conflicting. Some states that women have different leadership style of leadership than men. Some states there are no major differences in the leadership behavior. (Boundless) A reoccurring theme has been the difference among men and women in leadership is communication and the relationship with followers.
THE ESSAY QUESTION: What is patriarchy? What are the origins of patriarchy?Are women really discriminated and subordinated because of the patriarchal rules or are there ‘other’ reasons? Why? Why not? Discrimination of Women Because of Patriarchy Economically All over the world people are imposed by a system which declares them the boundaries between women and men and expresses that “the most powerful roles in most sectors of society are held predominantly by men, and the least powerful roles are held predominantly by women.”(Allan 1) This system is named as patriarchy and while it is shaping people according to patriarchy’s rules, people are unaware of this huge because after a while patriarchy is regarded as an objective system.
Men are always looking at women as the inferior sex and think that women are supposed to submit in all relationships, whether if it is romantically or on the job. I personally have a problem with that myself. I think that women should be treated as equals now because we have earned the right to. We do the same things that they do and sometimes we can do it better. Men are physically stronger than women but anatomy but stronger does not mean better all the time.
Sexism does still exist in the workplace today, not only for women but for men too, although modern day sexism is less obvious, more subtle, and harder to put your finger on. The Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (amended in 1991) prohibits an employer from discriminating with respect to compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment because of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin (Wiener, 2010). Women have always struggled with sexism since women first began to join the workforce. When women were starting to work in similar jobs as men, they were being paid significantly less than their male counterparts were. “In the article Complainant behavioral tone, ambivalent sexism, and perceptions of sexual harassment” it seeks to point out recent changes to these laws to help place what is sexual harassment.
In very few instances, say projects covering solely the supply of materials and equip¬ment, can projects adopt a non-gender-differen¬tiated procedure. Gender Imbalance in Project Management Recruitment Though more women are now getting involved, project management it is still dominated by men. Is this because of sexist attitudes of recruiters, or is it because of some other reasons? Female Project Managers, who had established themselves in project management in spite of their gender sometimes express real feelings of intimidation as part of their early experiences when they stepped into this predominantly male discipline.
Ethnicity in the Workplace Our nation and our workforce are both becoming more diverse. The share of people of color in the United States is increasing, more women are entering the labor force, and gay individuals are making big contributions to our economy. Proven studies have shown, businesses that embrace diversity have a more ideal future in the workplace than others. A diverse workforce combines workers from different backgrounds which put together experienced and knowledgeable workers in different areas allowing them to be more creative, innovative, and productive. Diversity is a key part to growing a strong and successful workforce.
