Sec 208 Wednesday, September 12, 2007 In the article, A Data-Storage Titan Confronts Bias Claims: Some EMC Saleswomen Fault Office Culture; Visits to Strip Clubs , the bias claims against EMC Corporation are discussed. The company has been accused of discriminating against women in the male dominating company sales force. Former saleswomen have filed suits against the company for sexual-discrimination claiming women are receiving unequal payment and treatment by the company and are sexually harassed in the work environment. The representatives of EMC claim that the corporation has a very strong and unique sales environment with an attitude of “doing whatever it takes.” They claim that this culture, however, is not discriminatory. With so many suits being filed by former saleswomen, it is difficult to believe that the sales atmosphere at EMC is not discriminatory. Allegations stating the corporation pays for company trips to the strip club prove this. The small numbers of women who have worked in the sales force at EMC, currently at 13.5%, clearly feel unwelcome in this male dominated atmosphere. This culture that EMC boasts about as being extremely competitive and heated, is driven by male egos, making women who work there, feel out of place and uncomfortable. The representatives of the corporation claim that women get treated equally, but the fact that most major accounts and promotions are given to men shows that women are not wanted in this environment. Although these representatives deny these problems within the company, it is very hard to ignore so many sexual-discrimination suits made against EMC in the past decade making it clear that this is a problem that needs to be addressed by the company.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
