Writing assignment | Engineering homework help

  

BACKGROUND

You are an intern at a large engineering-based technology firm. You’ve been asked by your supervisor, Jane Blackstone to provide your thoughts on the following situation.

A recent article published in the LA Times describes the internal organizing activities of engineers at several well-known companies, including Slack, Google, Microsoft and Facebook to raise ethical issues about these company’s use of its technologies, contracts with other companies and overall policies. See: https://story.californiasunday.com/tech-revolt

Your company has been identified as a leader in the industry and wants to understand the issues surrounding this trend.  To better understand the current situation, the company is asking everyone from VPs to lawyers to interns to offer their thoughts.  As a result, your supervisor has identified you as a person with a promising future and has asked you to participate by providing a 2-page memo that reviews the growth of employee activism in the tech world, and provides usable recommendations for the company.  

What do think are the pros and cons of employee activism surrounding ethical issues in your field?  Do your best to avoid generic thoughts on the topic. 

YOUR Task

In approximately 750-1,000 words, prepare your memo. This is the structure:

  • Brief overview of current      trends in the area of “employee activism” and its importance
  • Analysis supported by some      specific examples of ethical initiatives and issues that a specific company      (Amazon, Google, etc) or an industry has been involved with. This link, for example describes recent      developments at Amazon where shareholders voted down proposals submitted      by employees. https://enewspaper.latimes.com/infinity/article_share.aspx?guid=8aaf5179-ad90-493c-bf09-0ce80b3ef810
  • Brief recommendations for      your company. To what extent should      they support employee activism? How      could open discussion between employees and executives within the company      be managed? 

This is an internal document, not an academic research paper.  However, you need to use credible source material that is properly referenced (at least 2 publications: journal articles, newspapers, books). Citations should be included in the paper and listed at the end. You may use any standard system for citing material: APA, MLA, IEEE, etc. Look up one of these formats online to see the proper forms for citing your reference material.
