Georgia Business College 21 March 2011 Professor Henry Hitchcock 333 Hill Hall Georgia State University Dear Professor Hitchcock: Because you know Atlanta and live here in our town, we thought about asking you to speak at our GBC Awards banquet April 28. A few students on our campus in downtown Atlanta have read and admired your recent book Beyond Race and Gender, which became a bestseller across the nation. First off, we were like totally amazed that a local author is now the nation’s diversity management guru. But what exactly did you mean when you said that America is no longer a melting pot of ethnic groups— but an “American mulligan stew”? GBC doesn’t have any funds for honoraria, so we can only invite local speakers. In the past we’ve had people like the Reverend John T. Harper and Vice Mayor Beatrice Jenkins as speakers. The festivities generally get started around six p.m. If you require, we can arrange transportation for you and a guest. We know you’re pretty busy, but we hope you’ll accept our invitation anyway. Please let our advisor, Professor Ann Morse, know whether you can attend. Thanks! Sincerely yours, Albert Smoot GIT Business Club President

Georgia Business College 21 March 2011 Professor Henry Hitchcock 333 Hill Hall Georgia State University Dear Professor Hitchcock: Your book Beyond Race and Gender stimulated provocative discussion across the nation and on our campus when it first appeared last spring. Students here at Georgia Business College now consider you the nation’s diversity management guru, and for that reason they asked me to use all my powers of persuasion in this invitation. Because we admire your work, we would like you to be our keynote speaker at the GBC Awards banquet April 28. As students at an urban campus in a metropolitan area, we are keenly aware of diversity issues. In your words, America is no longer a melting pot of ethnic groups; it is now an “American mulligan stew.” We would like to hear more about the future workforce and how managers can maximize the contribution of all employees. Although we can’t offer you an honorarium, we can promise you a fine dinner at the GBC
