Option 1: Ethics Option What ethical issues has the company faced in the past and how did they address these challenges? Considering these challenges, evaluate the ethical leadership provided by the company’s executives (CEO, CFO, Board of Directors, etc.). Does the organization consider their various stakeholder groups when making decisions? Provide an example. Is the organization transparent about their ethical challenges? Provide an example. From an ethics perspective, what challenges should the company be actively monitoring considering their line of business? For example, an energy company is likely to be closely monitoring sustainability. From an ethics perspective, how does your company compare to others in their industry? Have their competitors experienced ethical issues? Provide background to support your analysis. Option 2: Diversity Option What is the company’s background in regards to diversity? Does the company have an active diversity program? How is it structured? Do they post diversity statistics? If so, please relevant statistics. Does the press positively or negatively view the company’s efforts in regard to diversity? Do employees view the company’s diversity efforts positively or negatively? Are there EEOC complaints against the company? Are employees making comments related to diversity on job sites (Indeed, Glassdoor, etc.) and are those comments positive or negative? How does the company’s diversity efforts compare to their competitors? Has the company received any positive recognition (e.g., rankings, awards) for their diversity efforts? Option 3: International Option Does your company have both domestic and international offices? Where are they located? What is the company’s dependency/strategy in regards to globalization? Remember, even if your company has only domestic locations, it does not mean they are not engaged in the global economy. Remember to consider supply chains and emerging competitive markets. Compare your company’s level of globalization to their competitors and industry. Is your company more or less active in the global market than their competitors? Provide an example to justify your analysis. Did your company experience negative disruption due to dependency on global markets within the last five years?
