1. You run a small consulting business that serves a relatively diverse community and have twenty-four employees in professional positions. You are not subject to Executive Order 11246. You are concerned that, of the employees in professional positions, your workplace has only one African American, no other employees of color, and three women. At this time, your upper-level management—the top six executives and you—are all white males. On the other hand, you have fifteen support staff (secretaries and other clerical workers), of whom fourteen are women and eleven are either African American or Latino. You would very much like to better represent the community in which you do business and you believe a diverse workforce has significant business benefits. You decide to institute a program that will increase the numbers of minorities and women in professional positions as soon as possible.

2. 2. Read Opening Decision Point: The Choice to Voice? (attached).
a. Using ethical analysis (rather than the legal analysis included above), evaluate whether it was ethical for Briskman to have been fired, for Kaepernick to have been blacklisted, and for Damore to have been terminated.
Was each of these employees acting ethically in voicing or acting on their values, and, if so, were their employers acting ethically in their decisions as well?
b. What are the key facts relevant to your conclusion?
c. What are the ethical issues involved in your decision?
d. Who are the stakeholders in this scenario?
Are any stakeholders’ rights compromised or limited by the employers’ decisions, other than the three employees mentioned? In what way?
e. Using ethical theories, how would you advocate on the employers’ behalf in each circumstance?
f. Co-author Chris MacDonald suggests, “A good test of your moral intuitions is generally to put the shoe on the other foot. In particular, when you applaud the exercise of autonomous judgment or freedom by some individual, group, or company, ask whether you would still applaud it if the individual, group, or company had values different from your own.”
In your answers to the above questions, consider your own consistency and whether you would respond the same if the content were different.
