DEI And CSR Initiatives

Netflix chosen company

During your discussions with the experienced project manager, they stressed that beyond profitability, other key elements your project should focus on are diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), while simultaneously demonstrating corporate social responsibility (CSR). In the marketplace, companies that have diverse project teams get varied perspectives that help the overall project. Just as important, companies that “give back” to the communities they service do better and are supported by millennial buyers—a big target segment for many companies.

For your initial post, research your selected company’s position on DEI initiatives and the CSR programs they currently support via the company’s website. Then, address the following questions about your proposed product or service:

What is the company’s position on DEI? Do they have a clear policy or initiative around it?
What actions could you take to ensure a diverse, inclusive, and equitable project team is assembled?
What is the company’s commitment to CSR and how does it affect their profitability or image in the market?
How does your product or service align with the company’s CSR program and how can you leverage this position as a competitive tool?

Employee working for a large corporation.

Imagine that you are a new employee working for a large corporation. You have been on the job six months when your best friend suddenly announces she is getting married next weekend, on a whim. Unfortunately, the day and time that the wedding is taking place are unconventional: next Friday at 11:00 a.m. As a result, you will need to ask for the whole day off.

Your boss has agreed to give you a day off on the condition that you get someone to cover your shift and meet with clients during your absence. After checking the work schedule for next week, you notice that your co-worker who works down the hall, Alice, has the day booked off. You would consider Alice an acquaintance rather than a friend, so you are not sure what her plans were for her day off.
