9 Assignments Corporate Diversity Strategy Assignment #1 Each student can select a corporation and create a PowerPoint utilizing all nine of Toyota’s Diversity Strategies and applying them to that corporation. They should use the company name as a slide master and create effects and timings as well. Active Listening Assignment #2 Students can be in pairs for this assignment but each will complete the assignment on his or her own. Using the McGraw-Hill Active Listening Exercises, students will prepare a table summarizing each of the remaining three vignettes (the first was done in Guided Practice). The table should by clearly labeled with column headings and questions thoroughly answered for each vignette. Appearance should be professional and pleasing. Logistics Assignment #3 Students will select a product and prepare a SmartArt diagram outlining the steps involved in supply chain management as it pertains to that product. Then they will each prepare a short report detailing each of the steps. Use the Kellogg’s example as a guide. The report should also address how the cultural diversity related to the product’s manufacturing or distribution is addressed, for example, whether or not their components are from foreign countries or how the products are shipped worldwide. Also, create an advertisement for the product that is translated into another language using Word’s translation feature or using another source to translate.. 9
