What is the affect on our cultural attitudes

We are all members of the human race. Humankind cannot be divided into distinct groups or pigeonholed into racial categories






An inclusive environment is one in which every individual’s unique perspective contributes to the overall success of the organization.



We are all human
Race is a culturally constructed category of identity that divides humanity into groups based on a variety of superficial physical traits attributed to some hypothetical intrinsic, biological characteristics.
- DSM 5

and groups because of prejudice or for other arbitrary reasons.

Social Concept of Race
Biological meaning: absence of pure genetic races

Because of migration, exploration, and invasions, there are no mutually exclusive genetic races.

Blood types cannot accurately distinguish racial groups.

The Human Genome Project, which mapped human DNA, confirms genetic diversity within racial groups is much greater than between racial groups.
It is not enough to have diverse social-identity groups in an organization; an environment of inclusion must exist.
Diversity Vocabulary
Ethnocentrism: "My view of the world is the only view."

Over Generalization: All members of a group are the same.

Stereotyping: Generalized statements or presumptions about the characteristics of an entire group.
Diversity is the old baseline.
Inclusion is the new one
