An important part of our course is researching informationon diversity and multiculturalism and its social, cultural, and ethical impactupon individual citizens, groups of people, and society at large. In thetwenty-first century, Web sites are an important channel of communicationbetween organizations and their external stakeholders. If an organization isserious about its commitment to diversity, one would expect that this would bereflected in the design, content, and graphics of the Web site. Potentialemployees, customers, suppliers, etc., often turn first to a Web site beforeinitiating interaction with an organization. If diversity is really integral tothe mission and values of an organization, information on diversity should beeasily accessible, informative, and well integrated into the Web site.
You will select a specific company in an industry such ashealthcare, hospitality, manufacturing government, education, sports, etc.Then, prepare a report on the following:
Evaluatehow accessible diversity-related material is on this Web site. Is there adirect link from the home page? What type of results does entering theterm “diversity” in a search box yield? Or, do you have to explore on yourown? Sometimes searching under “careers” or “press releases” may producesome diversity-related results. On some Web sites, you will have toexplore deeply into Web pages to find material related to diversity. Whatdoes this say about the organization’s commitment to diversity?Evaluatethe usefulness of the diversity information to potential employees,customers, and suppliers. Is the diversity material related to theorganization’s business case for diversity, core values, mission, etc. theway that the organization does business? How current is thediversity-related material?Evaluatethe appropriateness of the photographs and graphic material that relatesto diversity.
