Question Description

Needs of Marginalized Groups

**THE GROUP I WOULD CHOOSE ARE DISABLED VETERANS

Create an 8-10-page report on the needs of a marginalized group in an organization and ways to meet those needs through workshops, activities, various events, etc. You are expected to be creative in your approach to the issues you discover and expected to use resources in the class as well as original research as you move forward.

Conduct the research necessary for writing a report on an organization's ability to repair or enhance serving the needs of marginalized workers. Choose the group (women, people of color, elders, people with disabilities, transgender population, etc.) and the organization (which can be fictitious) that your report will be based upon.

In your paper, include the following:

  1. Choose a group traditionally marginalized in society, one that will need accommodations (not special treatment) to navigate the social structures in organizations, which traditionally hold these groups back in structurally discriminatory ways.
  2. Choose an organization. One you are familiar with that you know needs the support of an outside professional (you!) who can help them meet the needs of the group you have chosen to support.
  3. Outline the issues. Be specific and say what the issues are, how the needs are not being met, and how they need to be met.
  4. Craft a proposal that includes ideas for workshops, speaker series, book clubs, film screenings, outings, whatever comes to mind. The ideas should be well thought-out and mapped to the needs (this is the assessment portion of the assignment).
  5. Finally, outline strategies and plans of action that the organization can take to be successful with your proposals.

The point of the assignment is to engage in an area of need, create a plan (or plans) of action for the organization, and offer that organization steps toward improvement where you see the needs.

The portfolio project is an 8-10-page research paper (approximately 3,500 words). Your paper must be properly cited.

Final Paper Instructions:

  1. Include an introduction. It must provide a clear statement of your position on the topic.
  2. Your paper must be at 8-10 pages in length, not counting the title and reference pages, which you must include.
  3. The paper should synthesize current, relevant research on your topic from at least 5 scholarly sources.
  4. Offer your conclusions regarding how best to manage the issue (i.e., your informed opinion on the issues raised).

The paper must demonstrate what you have learned about current issues related to experiences of social class and how the many variables we have discussed in class influence society in the U.S. Your paper is expected to have depth and offer a thoughtful analysis on the topic. The paper should be based on references to scholarly materials (rather than on introductory textbooks, popular website writings, or musings). That is, support your claims with evidence.

The most common mistakes in writing an essay are (a) simply summarizing the topic and not analyzing it or discussing your views and (b) failing to relate the subject to the broader context of race, gender, and ethnicity, as discussed in class and as found in the readings. Adequately including the broader contexts includes, considering how your research might yield a different approach to racism or discrimination.

The paper and preliminary deliverable must be well written and formatted in conformity with the APA guide.

Introduction


Marginalization of disabled veterans at MCB Camp Pend leton has nearly become a norm.



A 2016 report by The Labor Department and Office of Special Counsel indicated that
more than 1430 new cases of alleged discrimination and marginalization of disabled
veterans are filed every year.



The rising cases of marginalization of disabled veterans prompted the need for this
research.



The purpose of this paper is to examine the needs of disabled veterans and offer
recommendations on ways the needs can be addressed.

Needs of Disabled Veterans


Disabled veterans are passing through a lot of challenges because of their disability
status.



In addition, their need for equal pay for equal work is critical.



Furthermore, their need for medical leaves has been infringed.



Disabled veterans need to training and development has been subverted (Zelenak, 2015).



Unwarranted dismissal and firing of disabled veterans is a big problem that undermines
their needs for equal employment (Zelenak, 2015).



Disabled veterans need for a sense of belonging and love has been sabotaged.



Moreover, disabled veterans are not recognized for their achievements in the
organization.



Disabled veterans needs for job security should be addressed.

NEEDS OF DISABLE VETERANS AND WAYS TO MEET THOSE NEEDS OUTLINE


Lack of an easy way to communicate has deprived the communication needs of disabled
veterans. (Santuzzi & Waltz, 2016).
Ways to meet those needs

Proposals


To deal with unaddressed needs, MCB Camp Pendleton should organize workshops and
training programs aimed at improving the relationship between supervisors and disabled
veterans (Allen, 2018).



The organization should also link disabled veterans with role models and offer peer
support (Allen, 2018).



The organization should come up with an initiative with an emphasis on mentorship of
disabled veterans (Santuzzi & Waltz, 2016).



The organization should also use in-house courses and book clubs (Zelenak, 2015).



MCB Camp Pendleton should leverage on benchmarking and taking employees for
outings in other reputable organizations (Trauth et al., 2015).



Moreover, the organization should organize team-building activities such as
interdepartmental games, team exercises, and other outdoor activities (Santuzzi & Waltz,
2016).



Creating workplace policies that prohibits discrimination of disabled veterans is
important (Trauth et al., 2015).



The organization should rely on management tools such as Slack, Zoho, Asana, and
Basecamp.

Organizing social events for formal recognition and rewarding disabled veterans for their
achievements is important.



Punitive actions for those employees who violate the right of disabled veterans should be
implemented.

Strategies and Action Plans to use


The organization needs to leverage strategies such as teamwork and collaboration,
training, education, mentorship, and outdoor activities (Lee et al., 2016).



The action plan to take should start with formalizing employees with the importance of
treating disabled veterans properly.



Formalization should be conducted in conferences or meetings.



After formalization, employees need to go through mentorship programs (Lee et al.,
2016).

Conclusion


Marginalization of disabled veterans is a “cancer” that needs to be addressed.



With the rising cases of marginalization of disabled veterans, the organization needs to be
reactive and proactive by taking actions such as organizing workshops and training
programs.
