Week 5 D05 Ethics and Diversity in Communication Current Events The media both the press and corporateorganizational communications are rich with examples of current events that reflect expert and sensitive handling of issues related to ethics and diversity as well as a plethora of current events that show insensitivity and poor planning Share your current event whether from your industry or other sources domestic and international No topic is off limits Just be sure to provide a link to your current event Response 1 My example of insensitivity and poor planning comes from the quotOccupy Home Depotquot event on Black Friday 11252011 Protesters from the quotOccupy Wall Streetquot movement have targeted The Home Depot as a greed machine and decided to not only organize a boycott but also protest at several locations What the movement hasn39t disclosed to the public to drive the agenda is how much The Home Depot has given back to it39s community Just this past year The Home Depot started a program to help veterans with housing problems by donating one million dollars to improving housing conditions The Home Depot also for the past three years has given back to it39s associates over sixty million in success sharing for it39s associates and yearly increases when other companies cut back and actually laid off workers Not to mention all of the local communities where The Home Depot donated generators to families in areas where storms knocked out power lines One example was where a family needed to purchase a generator for their home as back up for their son who was on a respirator The local fire department would normally loan them one but they were unable to accommodate the family They called some of the local big box retailers to purchase a generator but everyone was sold out When they called the big blue box they were placed on a waiting list and told they were the tenth family to call and they would be notified if they received another shipment of generators When they called The Home Depot they were placed at the top of the list The regional manager was notified and with in three hours they had located a generator and had it driven to their local location When the husband arrived to pick up the generator and attempted to pay they informed him that they would be donating the generator to his family so they would never have this issue again Wow that39s corporate greed httpwwwyoutubecomwatchvphELRH4pq7Y Response 2 I find this story very disturbing When speaking of ethics one would think those in the medical profession who have taken an oath to care for their patients would do so even after the patient died This apparently is an up and coming topic with more doctors and medical staff involved in stealing and selling organs on the black market httpwwwfoxnewscomstoryO293332700700html Response 3 My current event from the time magazine website httpnestedhealthof cialaccusedof 16millionfraud This makes me sick Stories like this makes my blood boil How can someone take from charities that help people in need Did he really need it Ethics and values were de nitely not thought of when he decided to steal this money
