Your final paper will include the following components:

you will find a list of movies related to the various diversity and inclusion topics covered in the course. Each student should watch at least three movies. The first movie should be “The Hunger Games” (the first movie of the series), as we will use that movie to generate interesting exercises and discussions throughout the class. You may choose the other two movies considering the two topics on which you wish to focus for your final paper (for example, racism, social inequality, LGBTQ issues, gender, ageism, etc.). Your final paper will include the following components:
INTRODUCTION: List the topics selected, the movies that address each topic, and the type of organization where you will apply the “lessons learned.”
SUMMARY: Include a summary (two to three paragraphs) of the two movies you selected. Keep in mind I may not have watched the movies, and need to understand each movie’s main content.
CONNECTIONS: Tie each movie to a diversity and inclusion topic. Make sure to use references to credible sources (see “paper guidelines,” below). You may also add here “lessons learned“ from the movies, the articles/book chapters you read, and class discussions.
ETHICAL LEADERSHIP APPLICATIONS: Explain how you would apply what you learned as an ethical leader. Remember that leadership is not the same as authority. We all have the ethical responsibility to lead, wherever we are, and whatever our position may be. Keep in mind our class mantra: “What will you do with the power you were given?”
ORGANIZATIONAL RECOMMENDATIONS: Finally, write a series of recommendations for your organization. What should the top leadership DO to enhance inclusion and psychological safety?
PAPER GUIDELINES
Make sure your paper addresses ALL the items above.
Your paper should include a minimum of five credible reference sources (four journal articles or articles from credible sources and the textbook). These references DO NOT include the movies.
Make sure to ALSO include the movie references on the reference page. Click HERE to find out how to properly include movie references in APA style.
Your paper should follow the APA style.
Include an APA formatted COVER page. Tip: For a sample APA paper, CLICK HERE.
Each page should be numbered using the correct APA format.
Citations should be included using the proper in-text APA format e.g. (Griffin, 2019, p. xx)
An end of paper Reference Page is required (e.g. Griffin, R. W. (2019). Fundamentals of management (9th ed). Cengage Learning). Again, check the format of a properly formatted reference page on APA HERE – go to page 17).
Your sources may include peer-reviewed journal articles, credible industry publications such as the Harvard Business Review, and credible websites from research, think-tank, or academic organizations. In general, look for articles no older than five (5) years. Exception: Theoretical content may be found in older publications. See explanations of what constitutes a “Credible Source” under “Paper and Infographic Tips,” below.
INFOGRAPHIC
In addition to the paper, and to facilitate sharing your findings with your classmates in small groups, each student will create an infographic summarizing their most important content, recommendations, and findings.
INFOGRAPHIC GUIDELINES
You will share the infographic with a few classmates in a virtual break room.
For confidentiality reasons, DO NOT share your organization’s name. Also, exclude any details that might identify the organization or indicate, in your discussions with colleagues, if you work in the organization or not.
You may share your screen during our meeting to share your Infographic. Please plan to share your screen even if you are attending the class face-to-face, as some classmates may be accessing our last meeting remotely.

For example, you could discuss strategic planning, board governance, or fundraising (or another topic) with the nonprofit

Interview protocol
Students will interview a nonprofit practitioner. This assignment has two components: developing an
original interview protocol and writing a report following your interview with the selected practitioner.
Interviews should focus on one of the topics covered by course readings to date. This is an individual
assignment. The Nonprofit Practitioner Interview Protocol & Report will account for 20% of your final
grade.
Interviews should focus on one of the topics covered by course readings to date. For example, you
could discuss strategic planning, board governance, or fundraising (or another topic) with the nonprofit
practitioner. Each interview should last approximately 45 minutes. Interviews can be conducted in
person, by telephone, or by teleconference (Skype, Zoom, etc.); emailing is not an acceptable alternative
for conducting your interview.
Interview Protocol Due Date: September 30. This assignment has two components:
1. Interview Protocol
Students should design and prepare an in-depth interview protocol for each nonprofit practitioner.
Be sure to identify the interviewee and their organizational affiliation on each protocol. Interviews
should explore the respondent’s perception of core nonprofit management concepts and
practices, how those concepts/practices are implemented in their organization, related benefits
and/or challenges, relevant innovative practices used by the respondent or in the respondent’s
organization and possible words of advice for students of nonprofit management.
The interview protocol is a guideline for you to refer to during the interview. Number each
question theme, and have sub-questions, or trigger questions listed below them. The subquestions are meant to prompt particular responses you are interested in and help to keep both of
you ‘on track’. The question topics should come from a thorough consideration of the types of
information you are hoping to obtain from this interview. Try to start with a question that is
somewhat easy to answer and that can set the stage for the rest of the interview.
The interview protocol should include an introduction that will explain the purpose of your
interview with the interviewee. The interview protocol will help you be strategic in using your time
with the interviewee wisely. For example, do not spend the majority of your time asking questions
that can easily be found on the organization’s website. Think about how to ask open-ended
questions and, if appropriate, follow-up questions based on their answers. Because each
interviewee will differ in the length of their answers, be sure to have a few extra questions in case
you have time at the end.
