Embry Riddle University Diversity and Adapting to Change Case study
In order to have a diverse organization, a culture of respect must be established. If harassment occurs, this impedes the organization’s ability to truly exhibit respect to all of its employees. This week you will learn about how a newly formed company created a culture of sexual harassment in the process. This week’s case study will focus on Uber and harassment issues within their organization that dramatically impacted their employees and reputation.
Read the critical thinking case “Uber Pays the Price” in Chapter Five of the Organization Behavior (OpenStax) (Links to an external site.) textbook which is part of this week’s required reading.
Once you have read through the case study, use the following guidelines to write your paper:
