There are two options for this
research project: perform a diversity audit on an organization with which you
are associated (or have been associated with) or perform a research audit on
one of the top 10 companies identified by DiversityInc as a company that
demonstrates the business case for diversity.
Students will identify/develop
criteria for the audit, develop interview questions to determine level of organizational
performance or collect evidence via literature reviews of performance (research
audit), conduct interviews or conduct research, and report findings. In this
module, Students will submit a proposal which includes the company they will
audit (with permission) or company they plan on researching, a criteria by
which results will be measured, and a list of ten questions which will be asked
in the audit or a preliminary literature review for their research of a
company. The topic will be on Target.
