What do you think about the notion presented by Terris that Lockheed’s ethics program does little to prevent ethical breaches at the highest level of the organization?
2. Are the efforts put forth—such as making sure higher level executives participate in training—enough to help executives navigate what Terris calls the ‘ethical minefield’ faced by leadership in such an organization?
3. What are some things that could be done to address the issue related to ethics at higher executive levels of the organization?
Terris points out that the company’s program is overly focused on individuals and that it doesn’t really address group dynamics that can impact ethical situations. For instance, there can be a tendency for groups to ‘go with the flow’ of the group decision making process and overlook ethical issues in the process. 4. What would you recommend that Lockheed Martin do to address this situation?
about the impact of gendered and racialized stereotypes on the experiences of workers, both within the paid labor force and in the domestic sphere within the neoliberal global economy. Write a reflection of how labor unions, feminist and human rights organizations, and individual workers have challenged the narrative that discriminates against workers based on traditional (binary) gender roles and/or assumes women of color to be an unskilled, submissive and exploitable labor force. Your interpretation of how gendered and racialized stereotypes affect the work experiences of women of color or gender-expansive individuals
An example from at least one course text (or documentary) that demonstrates an effort by a labor union, feminist/human rights organization, or group of workers to challenge the narrative that exploits or discriminates against workers based on traditional (binary) gender roles and/or assumes women of color to be an unskilled, submissive and exploitable labor force.
