number, illustrates such an action-based, results-oriented approach. Caring (Charity):These are the theories that come, not from a reasoned sense of duty nor from desired outcomes, but, because they are psychological and emotional in nature, “from an interpersonal connectedness”—an ethic of charity, as Brady suggests. On the universal side of this theory, examples drawn from religious situations and philanthropy come to mind readily: belief systems that value a love for humanity, for example, and a love for individuals because they are a part of that humanity. On the particular side, someone who joins the Peace Corps to do volunteer work in a specific setting or who does community volunteer work in a specific effort might offer us examples of particularized caring ethics. The theory that best deals with issues of cultural diversity is the Caring Theory because the diversity claim offered by ethics of caring might be stated as follows: we value diversity in our organization because we value every individual and his/her dignity and right to contribute and be a part of our organization. This particularist approach in a business setting seems more likely than does its universal aspect: we value individual, diverse members of our organizational community because we have come to respect, care for and perhaps love them.
