Concepts: of integration, tolerance and multiculturalism
The rights and responsibilities of individuals in society as citizens
Equal opportunities and positive action to find solutions for greater social inclusion
and representation without changing standards in favour of race or gender or disability
Corporate social responsibility

What are we learning today?
Who might have issues with integration?
Essentially it means to tolerate (accept) the differences of opinions or behaviour that you may not agree with.
Can you think of an example of this?
Lord Sacks, Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth says that multiculturalism was intended to create a more tolerant society, one in which everyone, regardless of colour, creed or culture, felt at home. But, he says, multiculturalism's message is "there is no need to integrate".
Some people think it is treating everyone the same, but it isn't always. Treating everyone the same all the time might not be fair. Why?
Positive Action
When is ensuring everyone is treated the same a good thing?
the right to be treated without discrimination, especially on the grounds of one's sex, race, or age
Positive action' means the steps that an employer can take to encourage people from groups with different needs or with a past track record of disadvantage or low participation to apply for jobs
Which groups might this definition be referring to?
How might public services combat positive action?
What is the difference between positive action and positive discrimination?
Corporate Social Responsibility
What does this image mean?
In buzz groups come up with common answers
In your notes
Write a short paragraph on one of the following;

-Something you learned
-Something that surprised you

When we talk about integrating cultures we usually refer to several cultures coming together to form a new, multicultural society.
Each culture keeps its character, features and values.
Representation without changing standards in favour of race or gender or disability
Some people think that positive action is unfair
It might seem that individuals from under represented groups find it easier to get into jobs
This is not the case:
It does not mean a change in standards - all candidates are appointed on merit and must undergo the same recruitment and selection procedures
These initiatives manage an organisations actions, to produce a positive impact on society.
Improving lives of the workforce
