This week you have read research on the theories of power, leadership, prejudice, discrimination, stereotyping, and obedience to authority. Now you will have a chance to showcase what you have learned by creating a recommendation based on this scenario about discrimination in the workplace.
Your post should be approximately 500 words in length and include appropriate APA-style citations and references as outlined. In addition to citing the assigned works you read this week, please locate and cite at least two more peer-reviewed journal articles on any of the areas studied this week to support your position. These articles should be recent (published within the last 10 years).
Read this news story of an employment (racial) discrimination lawsuit filed against Tiffany & Company.
After reading the story and your scholarly readings for the week, what advice would you give to any employer who is concerned about prejudice and discrimination in the workplace? One of the accusations alleged in the lawsuit is that a top management official stated his surprise that a Black man is representing such a high end brand as Tiffany. What does the research show about implicit attitudes on race? Can implicit attitudes affect the way someone behaves toward others? What impact might obedience to authority have on perpetuating workplace harassment/discrimination? Please be sure to use scholarly, peer-reviewed research to support your advice and professional opinions.
