It is common for people to attribute their social identity, self-efficacy and self-worth to the work they do. Organizational injustice and inequity in the workplace can have adverse and catastrophic impact on employees, specifically, women and minorities. Organizations continue to be affected by racism, sexism, ageism, ableism, and other organizational ills.  Although the Civil Rights Movement inaugurated a process to prohibit discrimination and oppression against many minorities and the protected groups, institutionalized discrimination and exclusion continue to plague many companies. This course helps students learn and understand the roles that inequity, injustice and discrimination play in organizations how they can be institutionalized in the human resource management policies and procedures.(i.e., recruitment, training and development, promotions, etc.). Through reading, assignments, self-assessments, activities, cases, videos, discussions and seminar, and field work and final project, students will develop the awareness to recognize organizational justice issues, develop skills to advocate for equity, and become allies with impacted groups to promote organizational and social justice.
