1. In the workplace today we have a diversity of persons. After studying social ethics what do you think is the best way to relate to and treat people of diverse backgrounds?
Ans: In every workplace, the diversity of the people creates authenticity and uniqueness making the organization develop more cultural improvement and growth in productivity and new ideas. Diversity also creates several issues and improper diversity management in the workplace can be seen in the behavioral changes of the employees and the way they treat surrounding people also creates an uneasy working environment (Tamunomiebi & Onah, 2019, p.59). Diversity highlights several issues like race, age, and the sexual even the different backgrounds of people which also highlights the cultural differences in the work and this process is a great strategy to understand the demand of the people from different areas. Proper management in any organization can bring the newness and implementation of different diversity management programs and rules so that harmony among people from different backgrounds can be established.
People from different backgrounds show the differences even their nature and their traditions and each person should respect the differences of each other. The major process to maintain diversity in the cultural process is the hiring process and choosing the correct people and their characteristics reflect their behavioral changes and their way of treating other people. Another prime process for the management of diversity is the proper training and the implementation of the idea of the “zero tolerance” policy including equal behavior and treating every person as an individual. One of the most important issues in the maintaining process of diversity is embracing each difference and being open-minded as a person as it reflects acceptance in the workplace. Diversity makes the organization more unique in itself so we should celebrate each culture.
2. Why do you think women gained the right to vote as late as 1920?
Ans: The beginning of feminism and the movements of women’s rights fuelled the fact of considering women as a particular individual and they also have the right to confess their opinions about the ongoing political situations. The position of women as an individual gender in society was not always the same and the patriarchal society always suppressed the voices and needs of women. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, women started to submit their petitions and demanded their right to vote for the selection of the government slowly this movement took the form of revolution and their purpose created a history in itself.
In the mid-nineteenth century, several age groups of women raised their voices against the patriarchal voices and tried to persuade their rights, their movement, and march to establish their rights. Furthermore, they also participated in the practices of the civil disobedience act to create a new formation of “radical changes” in constitutional rights. In 1878, for the first time, women urged their petition to the political party of Congress and it took the form of an amendment (Carpenter et al. 2018, p.38). In 1912, some of the women took another step and they made a strategy to pass the “suffrage act” and in 1916, almost all organizations participated in the movement. From 1917 to 1919 the prosecution actively participated in this movement and several political changing dynamics and the active involvement of the House of Representatives made the process more important and the vitality of the involvement highlighted their right and established it as an amendment. In 1920, the Fourth of June finally added the right as a constitutional right by the political power of Congress and after one month, on the 18th of August, it passed a right under the constitutional law of the Nineteenth Amendment.
