1. Go to the EEOC website. http://www.eeoc.gov/
2. Choose a broad category such as race, gender, disability, religion, national origin, age, genetics, sexual orientation and so on. Research all the information provided on the EEOC website about that broad subject.
3. Choose one narrower aspect of that subject, such as “racial profiling” or “pregancy” or “sexual harassment” or “religious accommodation” to name JUST A FEW and research that topic in depth.
4. Write a 1-2 page paper outlining what you learned about that topic. Use your own words.

5. To help you focus your paper, you MUST answer these questions in the paper itself:
* Why did you choose this particular topic?
*What did you learn about this topic that surprised you?
*How will knowing about this topic help you in your career?
*How does this topic relate to what you are studying in this class and in the other Business classes you have/are taking?
SAMPLE SEARCH ON THE EEOC WEBSITE:
If you have trouble narrowing your topic, here is a sample search you can follow for your broad catergory to find a narrower topic:
Broad Catergory a student may choose: Religion Discrimination
1. On the Purple/Blue tool bar on the EEOC website, I clicked on Employer
2. In that area, it lists all the different discrimination categories.
3. I chose Religion.
4. At that part of the site, on the right hand side, there are narrow aspects of that broad category of Religion under the “For more information see:” category.
5. I clicked on Policy and Guidance
6. I saw Questions and Answers: Religious Discrimination in the Workplace and clicked on that.
7. Then I scrolled down, saw a couple paragraphs on “religious harassment” and decided I was interested in that topic.
8. I read all about religious harassment there. Then I backed out of that information to the home page and found the Search box at the top of the page, typed in “religious harassment” and found all kinds of information, articles, cases ect… on religious harassment.
This is where you will find the information for your paper.
