Transcript of An individual appoach to exploring diversity!

In the past this country was called "the great melting pot." Customs and cultures from many other lands were expected to blend together, like ingredients in a cream soup. An individual approach to exploring diversity Today, we're starting to realize that the U.S. is more like a tossed salad- a variety of flavors, textures, colors and shapes. Why should I understand diversity? Because diversity can enrich your live - and your world. Understanding and appreciating differences helps: Individuals Groups Communities Diversity

parental status religious, spiritual or philosophical beliefs sexual orientation physical and mental abilities life experiences educational background work experience

work content/field recreational habits geographic location military status political outlook prejudice & stereotypes

When I offer assistance, does my approach facilitate or hinder support?
Do I take steps to ensure everyone is included?
Do I behave in a way that makes everyone feel included or excluded?
Do I tolerate others behaving in a way that causes others to feel excluded? Do I demonstrate appropriate respect for others?
Am I responsive to indications that others feel disrespected?
