1. How does what I have learned help me to understand the relevant SOI?
What I have learned help me understand the SOI because I know that businesses can be held accountable by the society because of their actions when interacting in a global environment. A business can be ethical and unethical through the different decisions they make in order to make their business sustainable, and more involved in the global community.
2. How does what I have learned fit within the relevant global context?
The global context for this unit is fairness and development. What I have learned fits within the global context because when developing a business, there has to be development involved, thus leading to ethical or unethical behaviours. Fairness can come in different ways, as being fair might make a business ethical, but when interacting in a global environment, businesses could be treated differently.
3. How does what I have learned help me to answer the relevant inquiry question(s)?
What I have learned has helped me answer some of the inquiry questions because businesses expand globally by being more involved with society, and interacting with the global community. Businesses can also behave ethically in many ways. For example, they could be more environmentally friendly by tracking their environmental footprint; or businesses could treat their workers fairly, or be more involved in the community in order to show that they are involved in the society.
4. Examples of real-world situations that help explain the content further
An example of being ethical is Gap Inc. Gap Inc has is a clothing brand that is quite well known around the world, and has done some ethical and unethical behaviours over the past few years. Since they have become more interactive with the global environment, they have changed some of their past unethical behaviours into ethical behaviours in order to appeal to a wider audience.
