Hi, I’m Carter Lombardi. I’m a Junior at John Jay High School, and a member of the model UN club. In addition to model UN, I’m an active member of the Student Council, and I enjoy science and math classes. I think that Fortune 500 is a fantastic topic because business is one of my principal interests, and everyone to some extent has some prior experience with many of the Fortune 500 companies. The influence that these companies have on our daily lives is a pressing matter to many of us, for better or for worse. These factors, along with my deep interest for business, make me believe that the Fortune 500 committee is the ideal Model UN committee. I’m looking forward to November!
Your Vice Chair,
Vice Chair, Fortune 500 Summit
The Second Annual John Jay Model United Nations Conference
Topic B: Discrimination and Prejudice
There has been a major flaw in how today’s companies operate. Prejudice of women, various races and people with different sexual orientations is still a major issue. Today women make $00.77 for every $1.00 a man makes. Racial slurs and harassment is still found in the workplace as shown through various lawsuits against Wal-Mart and General Electric, two major companies. Other major companies such as Exxon Mobil have struggled to handle the discrimination against their LGBT employees. In this Fortune 500 summit the executives of the most powerful companies in the world will together and speak further about decimation and prejudice in the workplace and how to combat it.
