SUBJECT: Memo to Future 100WB Students

Hello my dear friends. It’s my assumption that you have already completed your registration for the 100WB online course. This is going to be a fun course especially after you get used to it but you might have to pass through some challenges especially if you are not used to an online learning platform. First, it might be very hard to carry out real-time discussions since people are online at different hours of the day. However, this should not be a deterrence for carrying out meaningful discussions since students can engage themselves in discussion threads whereby they share their ideas exhaustively. Also, it might seem hard for you as a student to get timely feedback from the instructor but rest assured that any issue addressed to your instructor will always get addressed.

Moreover, I need you to understand that this online only class platform comes with its advantages. First, it is possible for you to study at your own convenient times. Also, you can post your discussions and assignments at your own phase without necessarily having to follow the stipulated schedule (but make sure you adhere to deadlines). The course will be beneficial both in the class environment as well as in the corporate world. You will learn to view how to critically evaluate scenarios especially those dealing with communication at the workplace. Moreover, you will learn how to present your ideas in a concise and a coherent manner, a skill which will come handy in your later courses. Moreover, the course imparts essential writing skills through its various assignments hence by the end of the course, the learner is both a better reader and a better writer.

SUBJECT: Analysis of Google Internal Memo

Moore’s 10 page memo to the rest of his colleagues at Google brew up a storm which almost shocked the foundations of Google Company with some consumers even threatening to boycott the company’s products (Ingram and Palli 1). From the reading and analysis of Moore’s memo, it can be seen that he was trying to pass his heartfelt convictions on the aspect of diversity at the work place (Damore 1). It can also be seen that he had carefully researched his work and hence strove to dig deep in to the issue of diversity and hence give his opinion on the issue. However, the issue of diversity is a sensitive one and hence it is always prudent to be very careful especially when addressing issues which border on the rights of marginalized individuals.

Aside from the controversial topic, I think Moore took his time and structured a memo which encompasses an aspect which affects the contemporary workplace. Moreover, the memo is convincing and seems to be well researched. While reading the memo, the reader gets the feeling that the author has the content at his finger tips and is not necessarily writing about fallacies or hearsays. As such, the memo is written from an authoritative point of view while encapsulating rationality in its stipulations. However, its credibility is questionable since it doesn’t seem to allude to or encompass any peer reviewed information (Armandi et al 28).

As such, from the given example and from the fact that Moore got fired from Google, I think it would be prudent to be prudent while communicating my convictions. In the contemporary information era, information can be shared across the world. Thus, a simple misunderstanding can lead to a wrong perception being tied to the sender of a given information. Moreover, some information is best kept to oneself especially if it leads to more harm than good (Palmieri and Mazzali-Lurati 190).
