...Reebok disputes sweatshop claims A News item from Business Respect, Issue Number 85, dated 22 Jul 2005 Reebok has described as 'inaccurate and unfair' accusations by the National Labor Committee that workers at its Honduras factory work in sweatshop condictions. The NLC said that Reebok paid only 19 cents to workers for each $75 jersey produced and suffered other treatment such as required pregnancy testing for women workers, and sought to draw attention to its claims through a demonstration outside the National Basketball Association store in New York. The company said in a statement that it would take further steps to assess workplace conditions at its Hansoll factory, but that it believed the claims were unjustified. The exchange comes as Nike and Gap have recently produced social and environmental reports giving new levels of frank disclosure around problems in the companies' supply chains. Posts Tagged ‘reebok’ Nike Just Did It. What Are Timberland, Adidas, Reebok and Clarks Waiting For? Friday, August 7th, 2009 Soon after we released our “Slaughtering the Amazon” report, Nike got in touch with us. The report showed that demand for shoe leather is one of the key drivers of deforestation in the Amazon, as rainforest is cleared to make room for the expanding cattle ranching industry. So Nike was keen to make sure that their business wasn’t contributing to Amazon destruction. Over the last few weeks we’ve been working with the company, and the good news is......

Women in Government

...in school and community, it wasn’t a joke anymore. Women in the United States are not involved enough in politics and government. Women are underrepresented in political offices at the national and local levels. Currently, only 17 women serve in the United States Senate out of 100 seats and only 16 percent of the United States House of Representatives are female. Why is this a problem? Legislatures, the House of Representatives and the Senate, create the laws that govern how we as women live in this nation. Legislatures decide if health insurance will cover birth control, if there is funding for child care, and other important issues affecting women across the nation. So what exactly has your legislatures done for you lately? The FDA, a federal run program overseen by legislatures, delayed for over three years whether the day after pill should have been sold over the counter. Insurance programs had the option to cover a woman’s birth control prescription until the Obama Health Care Legislation passed. But why did it take this long to decide that it was even an option? Legislatures cut funding in 2008 for child care and as a result, 250,000 children lost financial assistance to attend a child care facility. What a great way to help support single mothers everywhere, oozing with sarcasm. Not only has the legislatures decided our health coverage and how we take care of our families, they decide how much women make. Women face unequal pay for the same work as a man. A......

Walmarts Women Case Study

...w Wal Marts Women | Business Ethics | Ankit (28) | Ans1) If the law suit was successful the company would have to pay all the compensation amount which was around 86million dollars to its entire 1.6 million female employees .Which in short would be a big blow to the companys financials , and also with the deteriorating image caused by the issue they might possibly lose out on an considerable amount of customers leading to further financial implications. It would also result in higher prices in the store cause the company would try to make up for all the loss incurred cause of the particular suit. Ans2) The major complaints lauched by the women were that the company (wal mart ) discriminated against female employees in promotions , pay ,management training and job assignments. The women stated that promotions in wallmart were biased towards men where men were promoted much faster and at a much frequent rate then women. They also stated that there was a pay gap between men and women where two people of different gender on the same positions were paid differently and women were often paid fairly lower than the men. I think feel the complaints are valid. If you are in a job and you see other coworkers getting hired whom are less qualified than you are then I think that the complaints are valid. If more than one complaint is being made about the company then an investigation is warranted. The complaints are justified if you apply for a position or inquire about a......

Case Study: Women in World War Two

...Case Study: Women in World War Two After reading on these eight women I have chosen to do my compare and contrast from this Library of Congress Exhibition of Women in World War II story which was detailed with photography to tell their stories; for others to not only read their story, but to experience it through visual documentation. These three women, Toni Frissell, Esther Bubley and Therese Bonney were able to connect with millions of people through their images that they documented. From Toni Frissell’s pictures you were able to see how a nurse performed her duties, the actions of soldiers on the front lines, children who were made instant orphans as a result of war and the daily struggles of African-Americans and Women in the war. Esther Bubbley’s pictures were centered on life back home around people doing their part for the war effort, life in the nation’s capital. Therese Bonney’s pictures were really felt with her touching on how the damage of war affected innocent adults and children who were left homeless and struggle to find food and shelter. Therese Bonney’s mission was to tell truth of what she say through her words and pictures, with the hope that it would make others see the reality of war from a personal point of view. She had felt that World War II was a threat to European Civilization and this was her way to show the depth behind her words. On the other hand Esther Bubbley thought it more prudent to focus on the American side and show how the......

The Woodson Foundation, a large nonprofit social service agency is teaming up with the public school system in Washington D.C. to improve student outcomes. There’s ample room for improvement. The schools have problems with truancy, low student performance, and crime.

Capital Asset Pricing Model Case Study

...Capital Asset Pricing Model Case Study Beta Management Company (HBS Case 9-292-122) We are asked to read the Harvard Case and answer the following questions. The answers need to be clear so I can research your work myself to gain a better understanding. Therefore, please make sure I can follow your reasoning – ie: please provide an explanation behind each of your approaches to answer each question. I intend to use your feedback as the basis to gain a better understanding of this course, which I have had difficulty in the area of CAPM. Having your detailed solution with explanations in front of me, will allow me to better research this topic and provide me with the framework to understand this particular problem better. Therefore, the more information you can provide, the better. I am not sure what an average cost is for a tutor to handle a problem such as this, but I have attempted to provide a good incentive to attract a tutor that will understand that I am genuinely seeking to gain a much greater grasp on CAPM and as such, am looking for a tutor to provide an in-depth and accurate response. Thanking you in advance. QUESTIONS: 1. Compute the standard deviation of the stock returns of California REIT and Brown Group during the past 2 years. 2.

Meredith Knows Women - Case Study

...Chapter 4 Case Study Meredith: Thanks to Good Marketing Information, Meredith Knows Women 1. Meredith’s marketing information system really focuses on women. Their target market is women and it is obvious in the way they cater towards women. Some of their strengths include they cater to a woman’s progression throughout life, they have studied their customers so greatly that they have over 700 data points on each one, and they have even segmented each individuals interests in order to better serve them. Not only that, but they have so much data on their customers that they can now sell their information to other businesses. As print is a declining business, Meredith has also ventured into the online and television world and is making their presence known. They are not simply looking at the present but are also setting themselves up for the future. A weakness of Meredith is that preferences can change over time. They need to keep up with the changing interests of their customers and make sure their data points are not just a storage bin full of outdated information. Another weakness is that it is only providing to women through magazines and television shows. With all of the information they have gathered, they should be able to reach out to women in other forms such as clothing, exercise equipment, gardening tools, or even cookware. The information that they have accumulated could be used for another business venture. 2.Through......

Women Studies

...Sasha Klaeb WMST 101 7 May 2013 Assignment 4: Women and Work Question 1, The Glass Escalator: In “The Glass Escalator,” Christine Williams studies the way men are treated and their experiences when working in female dominated occupations, and finds that there exists a glass escalator for men working in these jobs. First, although Williams acknowledges that the proportion of men and women in the labor force is approaching parity, there still exists significant job segregation relating to gender. Both men and women are relegated to single sex occupations, meaning that they work in jobs that society deems more appropriate for men and women. What Williams does in this paper is different from other studies because rather than focusing on women in male dominated occupations and the barriers they face, she studies the underrepresentation of males in predominantly “female” occupations. She examines four typically female dominated occupations: nursing, librarianship, elementary school teaching and social work, and studies the implications of men working in female occupations. From these studies, she finds that unlike females in male dominated jobs, men do not face any discrimination and are in fact promoted and move up the ladder at a much faster pace than women. As one employee put it, there is a preference for men in these female occupations. Williams found that the more female dominated the job or specialty was, the greater the preference for men. The glass......

Case Study 9.16 “Boeing and the Recruiting of the Government Agent”.

...Case Study 9.16 “Boeing and the Recruiting of the Government Agent”. The Facts Ms. Druyun was privately employed while still under contract with the Air Force. This employment was held in a ‘meeting that didn’t take place’ between Ms. Druyun and Mr. Sears. Mr. Sears then broke his silence about this non-meeting via email to his colleagues and the chairman’s office. Another ethical issue is that an employee of Boeing purchased Ms. Druyun’ s home which made it much easier for her to make the move from the Air Force to Boeing. During the investigation that led up to Ms. Druyun and Mr. Sears dismissal it was established the Ms. Druyun had also lied about whether she had shown favoritism to Boeing on several contracts with the Air Force. While still employed by the Air Force Ms. Druyun had also indicated that she gave Boeing price breaks to help further the careers of her daughter and son-in-law. Defining the Problem Buying influence or Engaging in Conflict of Interest is one ethical dilemma we have with this case. Boeing was buying Ms. Druyun with a sweet job offer to give them the inside edge of gaining the contracts with the Air Force. At the same time, Ms. Druyun was buying Boeing with awarding them contracts with the exchange of boosting the careers of her daughter and son-in-law. Evaluating Alternatives To Whom and what do you give your loyalties as a person and as a member of the corporation? Ms. Druyun was not being loyal to her current employer. She......

1. Case Study - Women on the Right Track at Cp Rail

...1. Case study - Women on the Right Track at CP Rail Women comprise nearly half of Canada's workforce, but over the last two decades, they have made no progress in obtaining senior management roles. This lack of success may deter younger women from entering certain professions and from learning from role models. Furthermore, research shows that a lack of diversity can affect retention, productivity, and innovation. Companies with more female senior managers have a higher return on equity than those with lower rates of female senior managers. With this research in mind, CP Rail undertook three initiatives to increase the number of women managers: * Each department must have diversity goals. * Mentoring programs for females have been established. * Senior women discuss their careers in forums. * Women on Track offers networking opportunities. To date, the program has been successful, with the number of women in senior management doubling over 5 years. Questions 1. Compare CP Rail’s initiatives to advance women with the recommended six-step program for the implementation of employment equity. 2. Review the list in Highlights in HRM 3.1 (retention strategies). What more could CP Rail undertake? Here is Highlight H.R.M 3.1 ( retention strategies ) see bellow. 2.
