I’ve tried to learn as much as I can about the company and the workplace. I also make sure that I know what the residents are doing and who the relatives are by name. As a customer you want to know you are spending money with a good organized company with informed, caring and competent staff. I also think presentation is everything. A well presented receptionist and reception is a must and a tidy desk is a tidy
Beth’s office is through the kitchen in the back of the store. The Paradiso’s mission statement is “To build a lifelong partnership of raving guest, associates and stockholders”. Her job is to order supplies, doing schedules, hiring employees, cooking, serving, counting the register at the end of the day and taking care of the store. Beth says her least favorite thing about her job is the turnover never having enough people to run the store. There are times that she has to be the manager and the cook at the same time.
Therefore, the acceptance of a race in society as a legitimate category allows racial hierarchies to emerge to benefit the dominant races.” According to our text, “Ethnicity is a group of people that are set apart from others because of their national origin or distinctive cultural patterns.” 6. Why are these concepts important to the United States society? I feel because race and ethnicity are the major components of one’s heritage and culture and they should be explored and embraced by each and every one of us. These concepts are also important for the United States Government to be able to allow them to collect data for statistics on race and ethnicity. The data is gathered and used to study the various changes in our social, demographic, health, and economic characteristics of different groups in our society.
However, the decisions supports the belief among American educators and businesses that the skills needed in today’s society can only be developed through exposure to widely diverse people, races and cultures. As the Court concluded; “Educational benefits that diversity is designed to produce, including cross-cultural understanding and the breaking down of racial stereotypes...is further bolstered by numerous expert studies showing that such diversity promotes learning outcomes and better prepares students for an increasingly diverse workforce” (Hershberger 2003,
As sociologist Douglas S. Massey has said, “segregation is a key cause of poverty because where one lives determines much about the life chances one faces." And this in the United States is "Created by White prejudice, Actualized by discriminatory behavior and Condoned, if not supported, by government." Today both, in the US and in Europe as well, overt racism is replaced by “politically correct behavior” and the reality of social relations has been rarified. This has made the evil of racism omnipresent, omnipotent but still invisible. It is to the credit of White societies, that, this art is not only universalized but its social reproduction is also ensured.

CREATIVE MEETINGS THROUGH POWER SHARING (George M. Prince) Submitted to: Prof. Remegio Gabuya, CPA Submitted by: Josephine P. Dioquino Meetings are a fact of our everyday lives, whether in businesses, organizations, or clubs. How well we present ourselves and our ideas and how well we work with others during meetings will determine our success in all areas of our careers and lives. Unfortunately, many meetings are boring, unproductive, and too long. How a presenter or the audience can help to turn this around?

“Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack of White Privilege” In Peggy McIntosh’s essay, she addressed several issues that are considered to be very important ones. She speaks of how whites are given hidden privileges, yet they don’t even realize it. I believe that the purpose for her writing this, was to bring out in the open the issues of oppression with regards to the dominant race and their “unearned privileges” that they are so oblivious to. McIntosh compared this situation to how men are more privileged and advantaged, and women are at a more disadvantaged state. In comparison, she also stated that men do indeed admit to a woman’s disadvantage, yet a man will not agree to being more advantaged, because they too are oblivious to this fact.
