I am fine with the contributions - and ok with the sources provided, which in my view is key.

Little typos will be corrected as part of quality review.

I think we need to be highly critical of our contributions such that our final assignments will be without any deviations which might be caused by myopia and lack of positive criticism.

It's also important the final edited copy is made available by Wednesday, what do we think?

Akachi Ngwu (talk)06:56, 9 March 2009

Hi - some constructive critisism from me. If need, we can talk individually later tommrrow on the points below

Victor - I have no problem with the content. Just a couple of housekeeping issues as follows: 1.“Practicalises” – Is this correct?...I could be wrong. 2.“There is not disability access policy and several of its structures remains to be tested” – Typo’s

Luisa 1. The first 3 articles do not state which companies – The names of the companies and a one liner background on them would help a reader.

Akachi 1. Got confused by the heading – “Contribution to Question 4 of MBL911K Assignment.” I evaluated it based on Question 4, which may be incorrect. This is a different question right?

Shumi/Utang I found some typo's on ours as well! - we will ammend. Final Referencing details to be completed.

Conclusion - Just a thought to keep in mind - are we sure this is a 70% - 80% assignment as we agreed at study school?

Thanks Shumi.

Yes COMSEC has no Diversity Policy Document. The organisation however has not beeen challeenged in any issuee of diversity either in the Commonwealth Tribunal or any law court.

--Kay go 19:02, 8 March 2009 (UTC)the definitions are okay, though i thought we do not have much evidence of workplace diversity, from the COMSEC background, i reckon we need more statistics, e.g in 1971 COMSEC had 53 member states a workfoce of 200 employees and 40% english, 20%indian 15%Ghanain 25% Canadian etc, at the time the head office was in London and only two regional offices, one in New York and another in Zambian. Now in 2009 we have 437 employees 30% english, 15% indian.... 5 offices one in each continent. i think that will attract more marks. otherwise all i could sense was "COMSEC's spirit is willing but the flesh is weak" the potential is immense

Kay go (talk)07:02, 9 March 2009

I will look into this. The staff streength of COMSEC mighte actually havee dwindled, but i will get some stats there to improve it.
