In Chapter 11, Daft refers to Employee Affinity Groups and Minority Sponsorship as programs companies have used to encourage a culture of personal diversity. View the TedTalk of Mellody Hobson, Color Blind or Color Brave.
Ms. Hobson speaks about the importance of being “color brave” and that meaningful and intentional dialog is critical to stop discrimination in the workplace. She highlights work done by ESPN president John Skipper that personifies being “color brave” to ensure diversity hiring and workplace practices at ESPN.

As a new leader, you have been tasked with creating a new diversity program. The program should embrace a culture of inclusiveness, provide a platform for “color brave” and allow individuals an opportunity to network with all levels within the organization.
- Provide an overview of a program that you would develop at your organization.
- What obstacles do you think you would face and who would you need to involve to obtain the appropriate support?
For the most part the childhood of serial killers paints a little picture of the causes of serial killers. There are also theories, hypothesis, and approaches to why these serial killers murder people the way they do. Most of these theories have something to do with child abuse, but they are different development and psychological approaches to serial murder. In the following pages, there are different beliefs of why serial killers kill. As we all know science is always experimenting and the following pages should not be taken as fact. The psychodynamic theory has a few different views. One view invokes the Freudian concepts of unresolved sexual conflict, maternal over-protection, or outright rejection, in explaining serial murder. Other opinions describe how the murderer’s guilt from childhood prevents him from full sexual satisfaction, and that he must inflict suffering to the point that his victim is forced to “forgive” him. Some of the serial killers, such as Jeffrey Dahmer, has the belief that having sexual intercourse after the person is dead is more attractive because the corpse cannot reject him, is never unfaithful, and makes no sexual demands (Schwartz, 1992, 82). Furthermore, it may be that the serial murderer is “creating” something by murdering, which overcomes feelings of inadequacy and inferiority. The taking of trophies from the victim or recording the act in a book may serve to remind the serial murderer of his “creation.” The hatred of a significant female have also been reported by many serial killers (usually is the mother). Ted Bundy’s victims closely resembled a woman he was engaged to and then was dumped by. Some psychologists also believe that mutilations are a wish for the killers to re-enter and explore the mother’s body. This also goes back to the childhood of the serial killers. The hatred these killers have for their mother has to be linked to some type of abuse they were exposed to as a child (Wilson & Seaman, 1983, 6). The frustration/aggression hypothesis was also derived from Freud. He believed that aggressive energy build-up must be periodically released before it reached dangerous levels. If it were not released then it would lead to certain acts like serial killing. Others believe that such frustration dissipates naturally without violent acts, and that >GET ANSWER
