Social issues and the workplace

For the Final Paper, you will choose a social issue affecting the workplace and working environment, and develop a paper that thoroughly discusses the issue from both the workplace and societal viewpoints.
Be sure to include the positive and negative aspects of the issue in relation to the workplace, society, and workers, especially the unique worker groups who may be most affected (e.g., women, immigrants, LGBTQ citizens, the working or middle classes, and racial, ethnic or cultural groups).
Analyze how the issue could be positively supported using various social controls (e.g., laws, organizational policies/practices, training/education, government or corporate involvement, or social change) and recommend interventions in these areas.
In addition, discuss the potential social or economic benefits which may result if your recommendations were implemented.

  • The role of women in leadership
  • Faith-based decision making in business (hiring and customers served)
  • Sexual harassment
  • Executive versus worker compensation disparity
  • The gender wage gap
  • Whistleblowing

The paper must be eight pages in length (excluding the title and reference pages) and formatted according to APA style.
You must use at least six scholarly sources.
