After viewing your chosen video, write a paper that includes a summary of the presentation and a reflection and analysis of what you learned about understanding diversity and respect.
This paper should be 2–3 pages in length (not counting the title page and reference page) in APA format (including double-spaced and written in paragraph form).
The first part of the paper should address:
How the presentation you watched addressed diversity issues in today’s society. What are the issues, and how are they pertinent to today’s culture?
The second half of the paper should address:
What did you learn from the presentation you watched? Was the presenter skilled at thinking critically about human relationships in today’s society?
What questions would you want to ask this presenter (if you could) to help you identify and offer a vision of this issue?
How does the information presented provide an understanding of cultural differences and foster respect for diversity in society today?
It’s a term used widely across many settings and in different contexts but how is the word diversity actually defined? The Oxford Dictionary tells us that the word diversity refers to ‘a range of many people or things that are very different from each other’.
To give some more detail, diversity means the different qualities and experiences of each individual person which makes us able to offer different perspectives to the person next to us.
What about inclusion? Inclusion is about moving beyond simple tolerance of the things that make us different, and embracing and celebrating the eye-opening ideas that diversity can bring to a whole host of settings, including the workplace.
Diversity is not something to be afraid of. It should be something that we celebrate and promote. It can help people come out of their own ‘bubble’ and teach them something new about the world we live in. It can also increase new ways of thinking, provide new opportunities for people, and dispel misconceptions about different cultures, religions, ethnicities, sexualities etc. By embracing diversity, the country and world we live in can become a much more interesting place. Wouldn’t it get boring if we were all just the same?
When workplaces are filled with people from a range of diverse backgrounds, nationalities, and cultures, businesses are bringing together unique experiences, skill sets and opinions which can bring a new and unique perspective. For example, a workplace might have been stuck in a rut for months trying to overcome a challenge. By bringing someone in who can see the situation from a different perspective, they might be able to influence a change in direction and speed up finding a solution to the challenging scenario or task.
