Ashley B. Hilliard 258-10-0169 July 5, 2010-October 22, 2010 MG 665 Lesson#10, Assignment 3 To: The Southwest Region Sales Associates It has to my attention that Reed-Watkins Pharmaceuticals lacks sensitivity for diversity. This is a very alarming accusation. Many cases of alleged employment discrimination are a result of breakdowns in communication, rather than actual discrimination or harassment, diversity. Except for a very few fortunate people, we have all been the person in the minority at some point, she said. For example, we might be the only person from a certain socioeconomic background or the only person not dressed appropriately for an event. When we can empathize with someone we can do a much better job of working with them, she added. I have identified 10 main barriers to inclusion, gleaned from conversations she has had with people from different backgrounds and industries. Absence of informal mentoring. Employees who are not asked out to lunch or involved in other work-related social interactions miss out on the opportunity to develop relationships and to obtain important background information that might relate to their jobs, she said. Lack of quality work assignments. If you are not informally mentored you get whatever assignments come down the pike, she said, instead of being given a chance at something with a high profile.
