Explain the pros and cons of each technique, and decide which one would you choose and why.
Why is it important for organizations to provide diversity-training programs? What goals can be achieved through this type of training? What special requirements, if any, should be part of the training in order to realize those goals, and why?
Who should be involved in the orientation of new employees? Is it appropriate to provide orientation programs solely online? Why or why not?
