Introduction
American Cancer Society (ACS) is among the top-ranked non-profit organizations of the country that has been saving lives and creating a world with fewer cancer patients and more birthdays so that people stay well, help them in getting well, find cures and helping them in fighting back. It has been rendering its services to people as it is a community-based health organization that is dedicated to eliminating cancer from society (ACS, 2012).
Analysis of ACS Website
ACS website is designed in consensus with its mission, vision and core values. On its site, it has provided access to various articles and papers on managing diversity within the organization. There is a separate section on the webpage in which complete details about how the organization is managing diversity is properly explained. The study of Third Sector New England (2010) has provided detailed information about organizational commitment to managing diversity and it is appropriately applied in ACS.
Diversity Issues faced by organization
Some issues related to gender, race and religion are found in many organizations as they have some difficulty in fulfilling their commitment to managing diversity among their workforce (Krietz, 2007). According to ACS (2012) and CancerNYNJ News (2011), there have been no severe diversity issues faced by the organization as it has addressed all the potential problems carefully so that it doesn’t encounter any problems in the long-run.
