Consider your reading “Leadership Initiatives for Achieving Cultural Diversity” in Chapter 14, and then research how your chosen leader did or did not follow best practices and initiatives for achieving cultural diversity in the organization. For example, did the executive board contain any minorities? Explain which leadership practices were successful in diversity efforts and which practices needed improvement.
Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts, reflecting on the importance of achieving cultural diversity. Some suggested topics for discussion are:
- Do you think these initiatives are critical for successful leadership? Why or why not?
- Did the leader hold managers accountable for diversity practices? How or how not?
- Did you particularly identify with an initiative or rate one initiative as more important than others? Why?
