When we think about the connection between social sustainability, social justice, and distributed team management DEI comes to mind. Social justice is where everyone in the society deserves an equal amount in pay, protection, rights, and other human needs. The business world has recognized the importance of a trade-off among the challenging priorities of safeguarding the environment, economic development, and social justice (Casula, 2012). Then we think about social sustainability and that is how the organization or area will remain reliable in regard to social issues. A major challenge for organizations engaging in social sustainability is to bridge the gap between their business approach to address their financial objectives and long-term social objectives (Buser and Koch 2014).
When you put both social sustainability and social justice together, these are vital to distributed team management and must be maintained. From the philosophy of the office workforce to how leadership treats its employees and the way the company does business this all places a factor in the social equality of everyone involved. Overall, these principles are what keep the social norms within a distributed team equal and fair. The better that these principles are held the better the company is going to succeed.
In the Coast Guard, we saw an impact on our people during the social unrest of the killing of George Floyd. George Floyd, a 46-year-old African American man, died in Minneapolis after being handcuffed and pinned to the ground by Derek Chauvin, a white police officer (Taylor, 2020) As a military organization just like society saw a lot of social unrest and not everyone in the organization understood or recognize that others were feeling many emotions after this event. So, the Coast Guard leadership recognized this issue and knew they had to do something to help our members. They created a mandatory sit-down in which all hands had to get together and talk about the social unrest.
Now, I know how everyone feels about mandated training since most people just sit there and don’t talk. But with all the tension and unrest in society, this event needs to happen and was the impact that many members needed to understand. Overall, I was very glad for everyone that sat down when we talked about how everyone felt and the issues in society. During the event, there was a script that you followed, and it gave you a talking point to address in the group. This event did help to help to mitigate some of the concerns that people had. This tragic event happened, and no one can take away the pain from that. But understanding the social unrest and everyone’s feeling around it gave everyone the ability to understand and help other members of the organization.

Corporations must rethink, redesign, and redevelop business practices in a manner that is sustainable (Ajmal, A 2017). Sustainability relates to how corporate practices impact the economy, society at large and the environment. Corporations have started communicating and reporting on their sustainability efforts on an annual basis through the lens of people, planet and profit (Ajmal, A 2017). The aim of the sustainability efforts is to create a an equitable society one that is inclusive and allows members of society to participate economically free of prejudice. Social sustainability helps a corporation become successful on a global scale and conduct business in an ethical manner in the communities were the business operations are conducted and to respect the local culture.
Social justice focuses on the issues of fairness amongst individuals and equity regarding access to wealth opportunities and social benefits (CFI, 2023). Therefore there is an intersection between social justice and sustainability as companies must ensure that their policies are applied fairly to all employees regardless of culture or geographic location. The five pillars of social justice are access to resources, equity, participation, diversity and human rights. Most organizations now have diversity, equity and inclusion programs which are strongly aligned with their sustainability efforts.
The social justice issued that is relevant to my profession is diversity within Corporate America. Historically and even today African American women have had low representation within Corporate America and those who enter jobs within finance early on in the careers either reach a ceiling very quickly never reaching executive levels or they leave the organizations soon after due to frustrations because they are not able to progress.
In one of the organizations that I worked for a decision was made that the company would be focused on increasing diversity at the leadership position levels and the company began to provide annual updates on the percentage increases in diversity at the management and leadership levels. The numbers appeared to be remaining flat and, in some cases, even declining. The organization realized that communicating good intentions was insufficient. Specific steps had to be taken to truly see change. For example training programs to address discrimination in hiring practices, people tend to want to hire people who look like them and have similar backgrounds. So this had to be addressed through equitable hiring and interviewing training programs. Also the organization created new management and leadership training programs targeted for specific groups to assist in bolstering confidence so that those individuals could also apply and be prepared to take on leadership positions.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.
