Assignment 2: Recognizing the Impact of Diversity on the Workplace
BANKS Industries continues to work on bridging cultural gaps as it embraces the diversity that resulted from its merger. You have been asked to develop a new diversity policy and training series for your team to help employees recognize the impact of diversity in the workplace.
Using the module readings, the Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet, respond to the following:
Design a presentation that you will use to present your training plans to your supervisor and the HR department.
Include a definition of diversity, a description of the cultural issues you intend to cover, strategies you will use to convey the message, and the outcomes you expect.
Be sure to include the following in your presentation:
A title slide
A reference slide
Headings for every slide
Notes to support the content on each slide
Develop a 7–10-slide presentation in PowerPoint format, not including the title and reference slides. You may reference the reading by Hofstede (2009) as a catalyst for your presentation; however, required readings serve only as a foundation for your presentation. Support the presentation with original research and citations.
Apply APA standards to citation of sources. Use the following file naming convention: LastnameFirstInitial_M2_A2.ppt.
By the due date assigned, deliver your assignment to the Submissions Area.
