background image 29 Jan 2019  Learning objectives:  Extend our understanding of discrimination  Able to articulate diversity legitimate goal when it is not or when diversity => boundaries Important terms & significant : social dominance theory Potential danger of inherent biased  Harvard Case: Asian problem & a preference for white students from “Sparse Country” 
Problem: Didn’t want to be overrun by jewish => cut Jews to 15% of the student body => oppose by other
Harvard officials as it is discrimination & inconsistent with Harvard’s liberal tradition. 
What they did : “policy of equal opportunity” : introduced the consideration of qualitative factors : 
personality & background => geographical diversity : part of admissions process.  Angelica Gutierrez article: 
Types of Organizations: 
Multicultural : the organizational cultural values differences Plural : has a diverse workforce and takes steps to be inclusive and respectful of differences, but  where diversity is tolerated rather than valued. Colorblind : disregards cultural differences, and emphasizes assuming a unifying,  superordinate identity  Monolithic: homogeneous  In Harvard article: it should not be colorblind and legally it doesn’t have to be
Stereotypes: 
Beliefs and assumptions of a group of people personality traits, behaviors, and actions based solely what 
group they are and fit into (positive and negative) 
Example: Asians are hardworking, good at Math 
Counterstereotypic: an individual who possesses characteristics associated with racial­out­group. 
Social Dominance Theory: an individual difference variable defined as “the degree to which individuals  desire and support group­based hierarchy and the domination of “inferior” groups by “superior” groups 
Dominant & Subordinate: 
Dominant : white Subordinate: asian, black, latinos  SDO (group based system)  Age system  Gender system Arbitrary set : domination (race)  Dominant: positive social value had greater access to higher education, health, wealth 
Subordinate: negative social value => access to lower quality health care, lower performing schools, and 
substandard housing 
=> having policies: 
Reduce inequality  Maintain that dominant group (hierarchy­maintaining)  People who seek to reduce inequality (low SDO) : seek policies and support affirmative action to increase
the representation 
People who wants to maintain hierarchy (dominant) : oppose the policies and affirmative action  31 Jan 2019 
background image Learning objectives:  Understand the arguments and against the notion that business has responsibility to society : 
shareholders & stakeholders theory 
Distinguish myth and reality : respective theories  Identify company key stakeholders  Familiar with CSR Triple bottom line SRI (look at exhibit 5) , externalities Advantages CSR => stakeholders => apply this fundamental to Nestle case study  Novo Nordisk : promoting eating healthy, healthy lifestyle (nutritional)  Form of Corporate social responsibility => kids getting diabetes (obesity) trying to keep the diabetes rate 
down. 
Evil Businessman’s Dilemma :  Stakeholders theory: the primary purposes is not just to shareholders but to all company stakeholders  Customers, employees, government, suppliers, community, investors. 
Shareholder theory: corporation and the officers and directors primary purposes is to fulfill the need of 
the shareholders  Nestle case:  Suing Nestle cargo over the child labor practices  There were actually children working on the farm ( children trafficking) => held on the farm and not able 
to escape. (Put them on trucks) The children didn’t know where they were taken 
If they try to escape : beaten every time they were guards in the plantation  Children are being traffic in the Ivory Coast Consul of General of Mali => found and take some children back (10­19 when they were being held, not 
being able to leave the farm , communicate with the family & no school) 
Nestle : create school => it didn’t solve because the children are being held.  Cargo (US based company) : huge agricultural company 
A few years ago before the lawsuit filed, parent company : Minneapolis
Engaging this children trafficking abroad 
Americans? Encouraging the system of slavery for chocolate => how does this get to the US 
Text of the Statue: 
­ civil action someone can sued for money who can sue an alien? 
International disgrace there is incident way back on the founding fathers 
How does our reputation => international stage => federal court 
If you engaged in slave trafficking => international alien statue => criminal charge under the US law 
International law violation : 
Companies are making :  We can’t provide chocolate to the US without engaging in this practicing. We know they were slaveries 
in the supply chain.
Cargo => If they have enough money from Nestle =>
For these small farms : set prices so low (low profit) 
Mars: certified chocolate 
Nestle: cocoa plant => sustainability on the packaging but not on the website : they acknowledge they 
have children trafficking on the plantation
