...FINAL EXAMINATION CASE STUDY “A RESEARCH OF GENDER DISCRIMINATION IN THE WORKPLACE” 1. Abstract Smith Barney (now part of Citigroup Global Markets) was ordered by the court to evaluate the climate for personal development and advancement through promotion in not only Smith Barney but, as a comparative, in other financial services firms. The case describes the methodology used to sample both men’s and women’s beliefs and attitudes, as well as revealing some of the basic findings. 2. The Scenario In 1996 Pamela K. Martens, Judith P. Mione, Roberta O’Brien, and 22 others filed a class action suit in U.S. District Court, New York, against Smith Barney and former Garden City, New York, office manager Nicholas Cuneo, citing a rash of complaints. These included “intimidation, retaliation, and humiliation,” as well as lack of fairness in pay, denial of promotion, demotion due to maternity leave, unfairness in distribution of accounts and discharge without cause. Initially Cuneo was discharged, but when the plaintiffs did not drop their suit, he was reinstated as a sales agent. In May of 1998, Judge Constance Baker-Motley approved a settlement, which had been accepted by 23 of the 25 plaintiffs. As part of the settlement in Martens, et. al. v. Smith Barney (S.D.N.Y., 96 Civ3779), Smith Barney was charged with paying for a study of the issues underlying the suit.

How to Study for the Exam

...How to Study more efficiently Students all face procrastination every now and then as we delay our work until the very last moment. This is because of different reasons which include the lack of confidence and motivation. After a busy day at school, they end up delaying your studies until the day is almost over. Then they realize that they are tired and need to head to bed. At that moment your nerves start to tingle and you become worried about the due date of the assignment. To help you pass through this phase, I have formulated a procedure to make use of the limited time they have to complete assignments and study more effectively. To begin with, you are going to need the self-confidence that you are ready to face the books and finish this task once and for all. The moment you have this in your mind, you won’t have any distractions. This helps you concentrate, maintain your focus on what you are about to study and become capable of visualizing your goal. After that, you are going to need to isolate yourself to complete your studies so that there are no distractions which may set you off course. It is better to sit in a small room where family members or roommates do not come very often so that you have the privacy to study. Simultaneously, you are going to need a clear desk which has no unnecessary materials on it except the books and copies you are going to use. It will be to your advantage to assure that everything you might need to complete the task is present on...
