Impact On Personality On Attitudes Towards Diversity And Diversity Initiatives, Sana Lall-Trail 2020 William & Mary

Impact On Personality On Attitudes Towards Diversity And Diversity Initiatives, Sana Lall-Trail

Undergraduate Honors Theses

The present research aimed to understand the impact of personality on diversity attitudes in the workplace. Specifically, we explored the relationships between the personality traits of Openness to Experience and Agreeableness and general attitudes towards diversity (Study 1), as well as receptivity to diversity initiatives in the workplace (Study 2). In Study 1, after controlling for relevant demographic variables, we found that Openness to Experience positively predicted universal diverse orientation and pro-diversity belief, but not sensitivity to diversity. Agreeableness positively predicted all three diversity measures. In Study 2, after controlling for relevant demographic variables, Openness to Experience positively predicted universal ...


Implementing An Arts-Based Initiative Pedagogy In A Business School Creativity Course, Joseph Ruiz 2020 Mr.

Implementing An Arts-Based Initiative Pedagogy In A Business School Creativity Course, Joseph Ruiz

Creative Studies Graduate Student Master's Projects

Traditional education and training methods are not well suited to the task of equipping the new workforce. Different skills are needed to succeed in an increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous environment. Arts-based initiatives provide a new model for teaching twenty-first century job skills by leveraging an emerging arts-based pedagogy as a fundamentally different approach to teaching, training, and equipping a new generation of workers, uniquely qualified to function in this new environment.

The new pedagogy is based on four arts-based processes:

  • Skills Transfer
  • Projective Technique
  • Illustration of Essence
  • Making


An Examination Of The Financial Sensitivity Of The Defense Industry To Spending Strategies Of The United States Government, Ryan Carr 2020 University at Albany, State University of New York

An Examination Of The Financial Sensitivity Of The Defense Industry To Spending Strategies Of The United States Government, Ryan Carr

Business/Business Administration

Knowledge of the relationship between the financial performance of firms within the U.S. defense industry and the defense spending decisions by the United States Government is an important domain of research. Greater understanding can enable investors, communities, and employees to make more informed decisions about investments and/or career choices. In this work, I examined the financial statements of five major American defense contractors from 1993-1995, 2003-2005, and 2011-2013. Financial performance of these firms was then correlated with spending actions by the United States Defense Department. Although the financial sensitivity of these firms on spending decisions by the United ...


The Economics Of On-Farm Rice Drying In Arkansas, Clayton Parker 2020 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

The Economics Of On-Farm Rice Drying In Arkansas, Clayton Parker

Agricultural Economics and Agribusiness Undergraduate Honors Theses

Globally, rice producers are faced with the temporal problem of deciding the optimal time to being rice harvest. When harvested, paddy rice is typically at a moisture content (HMC) between 15 and 22%. Upon delivery, the rice is subsequently dried by the mill to a moisture content (MC) of 12.5%. Riceland Foods Inc., the largest miller of rice in the world, uses a stair-step pricing model to charge farmers to dry in price/unit as the MC of grain decreases from a range of +22% to 13.5%. This study estimates an alternative linear relationship in the stair-step model ...


The Bidirectional Relationship Between Art And Business, Hannah Brletich 2020 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

The Bidirectional Relationship Between Art And Business, Hannah Brletich

Information Systems Undergraduate Honors Theses

There has long been an established relationship between art and business, finding its roots in the Industrial Revolution when the effects of arts on the economy were first explored. Since then, creative economies have been influenced by adaptation of businesses through urban development and revitalization and by continuous growth in artistic and cultural spaces. Capturing the relationship between arts and urban design, cultural districts establish strong economic communities within vastly creative, business- and culture-centered spaces. Current research provides insight to the economic, social, and cultural outcomes of creative economies.

As a contribution to that narrative, I will use this analysis ...

Debt Bondage: How Private Collection Agencies Keep The Formerly Incarcerated Tethered To The Criminal Justice System, Bryan L. Adamson 2020 Seattle University School of Law

Debt Bondage: How Private Collection Agencies Keep The Formerly Incarcerated Tethered To The Criminal Justice System, Bryan L. Adamson

Northwestern Journal of Law & Social Policy

This Article examines the constitutionality of statutes which allow courts to transfer outstanding legal financial obligations to private debt collection agencies. In Washington State, the clerk of courts can transfer the legal financial obligation of a formerly incarcerated person if he or she is only thirty days late making a payment. Upon transfer, the debt collection agencies can assess a “collection fee” of up to 50% of the first $100.000 of the unpaid legal financial obligation, and up to 35% of the unpaid debt over $100,000. This fee becomes part of the LFO debt imposed at sentencing, and ...

Computer Information Systems Journal Articles

With the imminent need of regional environmental protection and sustainable economic development, the concept of virtual water is widely used to solve the problem of regional water shortage. In this paper, nine provinces, namely Qinghai, Sichuan, Gansu, Ningxia, Inner Mongolia, Shaanxi, Shanxi, Henan, and Shandong in the Yellow River Basin (YRB), are taken as the research objects. Through the analysis of input-output tables of 30 provinces in China in 2012, the characteristics of virtual water trade in this region are estimated by using a multi-regional input-output (MRIO) model. The results show that: (1) The YRB had a net inflow of ...

Idea Co-Creation On Social Media Platforms: Towards A Theory Of Social Ideation, Pratyush Bharati, Kui Du, Abhijit Chaudhury, Narendra M. Agrawal

Computer Information Systems Journal Articles

Innovation scholars have long been discussing social media as a rich source of information, knowledge, and new ideas, yet, whether or how social media can directly intervene with organizational ideation processes remains unclear. In this study, we investigate the impact of external and enterprise social media platforms on organizational ideation. Grounded in seventy-nine cases and adapting social capital theory in social media contexts, this study attempts to develop a theory of social ideation. Social ideation consists of social media-enabled mechanisms that generate social capital, enable multi-level social exchanges, foster idea co-creation activities such as idea sourcing, filtering, elaboration, and integration ...

Measuring And Unpacking Affective Polarization On Twitter: The Role Of Party And Gender In The 2018 Senate Races, Kevin Mentzer, Kate Fallon, Janet Prichard, David Yates

Computer Information Systems Journal Articles

This study examines how the Twittersphere talked about candidates running for the U.S senate in the 2018 congressional elections. We classify Twitter users as Liberal or Conservative to better understand how the two groups use social media during a major national political election. Using tweet sentiment, we assess how the Twittersphere felt about in-group party versus out-group party candidates. When we further break these findings down based on the candidates’ gender, we find that male senatorial candidates were talked about more positively than female candidates. We also find that Conservatives talked more positively about female Republican candidates than they ...

This paper describes the practice of "design thinking" in a Japanese company that tends to operate in an in-house-completed work context under a rigorously divided function-based vertical organization. In order to respond to significant shifts in the business environment accompanied by technological advances and changes in people's values, Toshiba introduced "Customer Value Design,” customized design thinking. Customer Value Design is characterized by "co-creation" of customers’ value with customers, "collaboration" in a Cross-Functional Team (CFT) of various experts transcending organizations and categories of expertise, and the "customer perspective" in co-creating experiential value, enterprise value, and social value. In order to ...
