The following is an outline of recognitions identified by the advisors, members and alumni of National Women of Achievement. Sessions held through multiple phone interviews helped us achieve a conclusion of what the ultimate goals and intentions of the organization were and the liabilities the organization face due to communication.
Many organizations are beginning to view diversity as an organizational change. This could possibly mean changes in the power dynamics and organizational structure, the way decisions are made, and the way an
The meeting started with the president of the group asking each one of us to write down three goals and ideas for a community outreach project. My ideas consisted of working with a homeless shelter to provide adequate rooms for the families, working with a local elementary school to build a maker’s space for the children, and creating a large event that mimic’s TED X by creating a large educational form for all design fields to support a cause.
Due to this, I offered up my help to be a part of a leadership role within the planning of the event. I soon found myself working on the First Friday outside of our sessions, facilitating
Today’s management in the workforce is composed of all types of people verses thirty years ago when white males held a majority of upper-management positions in companies. These positions are now held by a mixture of ethnic back grounds and women who hold just as many if not more management positions then men. Just by looking at the changes in management demographics shows how important it is for people to understand cultural competency in the workplace. Dr. Roosevelt Thomas Jr. (1999) stated, “Diversity is the collective mixture of whomever we have in our workforce characterized by their differences and similarities” (p.11). Managers and supervisors must understand the characteristics of a diversity mature individual; they also need to be
It showed that being a women its okay to have different leadership styles and that its okay to embrace them. Even though men are more than half of executive leaderships, as women don’t have to identify with them and try to change our demeanor and style in order to leader the way we do. Another I personally enjoy about this book is that not only is target to a feminine audience wanting to understand and learn from their leadership role, she able to show exercises and how we can challenges are self to do that through each chapter of the book. Me reading this book and another women reading this book would being a able to get a different message from this book and being to be more confident as well as identify with their strengths as well as know their weakness and how to take the step as a leader to enhance those weaknesses to benefit themselves and other around
At the event they had food, informational booths and educational materials and a guest speaker. In this presentation I learned a lot about what it takes to put on a successful event and even gained a lot of insight about how to capitalize on setbacks and view them as opportunities. I also really appreciated the fact that the group shared with us the information they gathered on breast cancer. I learned a lot about breast cancer and felt almost like I was attending their event by being at their presentation. They implemented great research tools and resources and showed the audience how those played a huge role in the planning and execution of
It is time for lunch or maybe even dinner and one has no idea what to eat. After looking through take out menus and reading restaurant reviews everyone decided on one place, Applebee’s. Here comes the next hard decision which is what to eat. If you are like me then you already know what you are going to eat before you even get there. Now on the other hand if you are like a lot of others, you get to the restaurant and have to sit there for another twenty minutes before finally deciding on something. The waitress offers the special and asks what everyone would like to drink. Well at least you know the answer to that question.
The conversation around gender diversity, the importance and rights of women in the workplace, absence of women in the C-Suite and their minimal representation in the boardroom, and the recommendations and efforts made to address these issues garnered some noticeable momentum in 2013. This increase in awareness is partly due to a tipping point focused on a study released March 7, 2013 by Calvert Investments, a mutual fund firm that invests in companies that engage
“The future of many organizations is likely to depend on their mastery of diverse succession planning given that building bench strength among women and minorities will be critical in the competitive war for talent”. (Charles R. Greer and Meghna Virick, 2008.)

I suggest that the company should engage in discussions about the best approach to increase gender diversity in corporate management. One of the interviews with employees of PU Department revealed that Hossain is the only female manager in the firm. Another complaint was directed toward to her gender: “I never want to work for a woman again.” The demand for greater gender equality in the management is higher than ever before. A study on more than 800 businesses in retail and hospitality industry states, “diverse and engaged in Retail units have a 46% higher increase in comparable revenue. Similarly, diverse and engaged units in the hospitality company have a 58% higher net profit than single-gender and less-engaged units.” Thus, if company can highly engage the gender diversity, financial performance will improves dramatically.
