Task 2

Top-level
management must demonstrate and communicate a vision that includes a diverse
culture within the organization. This is most effective when leaders are
open-minded and embrace the differences in their workforce. Using appropriate
language, both written and verbal, and behaviors to promote a culture of
inclusiveness sets the stage from which followers take their cues. Identifying
goals and strategies that are outlined in an organization’s plans and
objectives demonstrates a culture of inclusion and value of all workers.

A
diverse workforce offers many viewpoints that, when guided by an effective
leader, yields greater productivity and achievement of goals. Leaders should
provide opportunities for workers to be evaluated and promoted equally.

In this
assignment, you will write your own diversity plan recommendation. Based on the
information you derived from hiring processes and leadership styles, write a
recommendation of 2–3 pages to your boss about what you think should be
included in the diversity plan within your organization.

Police Academy and the Citizen’s Fire Academy. Your task is to outline and
explain the roles and responsibilities of the various entities or organizations
that would respond to an emergency or disaster in your city, emphasizing the
scalable nature of response efforts.

Assignment
Guidelines

  • In this assignment,
    you will create an organizational chart that outlines the roles and
    responsibilities of those who would respond to a large chemical spill in
    your city.

    presume that local, state, and federal personnel and resources will be
    involved in the response.

      the local fire department’s response would include the following:
