On a personal note, I am a Seventh Day Adventist and have run into similar situations where offerings of training, seminars, or tests have come into conflict with my belief. Seventh Day Adventist’s observe the Sabbath being on Saturday and cannot work or participate in secular life from Friday sunset to Saturday sunset. I have, up to this point been accommodated, but there are those in my family or friends who have not. Some have experienced discrimination in the workplace or have been fired for our belief. Yet, due to Seventh Day’s Adventist belief that God will open another door, you rarely find many going through the judicial process. The belief and practice of this religion brings conflict in sports events that were held on Saturday, the SAT’s being held on Saturday, and a lot of public events being held on Saturday. How can we move forward in workplace that still in modern time’s combats religious and sexual orientation discrimination? A suggestion that Drew (2002) makes is a culture shift in the workplace that includes: (1) creating new rights and remedies; (2) alter the conduct of the government; (3) alter the conduct of citizens; (4) express a new moral ideal or standard; and (5) change cultural attitudes and patterns (308). Creating new rights and remedies for the victims can deter workplace discrimination from even happening. Altering the conduct of government entails of how they approach the issues surrounding discrimination and that leads into altering the conduct of citizens to work on their approach as well. In the workplace, the environment needs to hold a new standard and moral ideals surrounding those who come from diverse backgrounds and what they bring to the workplace due to their beliefs and the practice of them. Lastly, but most importantly is to change cultural attitudes and patterns around diverse beliefs and practices of these beliefs. It’s what make America so special, but at the same time is the core of our major conflicts between one another.

Society, has forgotten the humanity that we all share and that’s the key to our undoing of discrimination, not only in the workplace but in our daily lives. Once we realize that we share the common bond of being a part of the human race and experience sadness, anger, heartbreak, embarrassment, hurt, and the many other emotion that are experiential to humans; we can start reveling in what makes each individual unique. This is the common thread we all embody, which is being a human being and in proceeding forward there needs to be a notice and embracing of this concept! Had I been in the position of the HR Director I would have let him go when refusing to produce sensitivity curriculum and lend support to the trainer if Mr. Stuyvesant was still in his probationary period. The position he held, which included creating diversity training was not the right fit for him being head of this task could place the department in future discrimination cases.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
