In constructing your paper, please address the questions below. Make sure you synthesize course material into your paper (information from the eText and additional resources is expected).
- Identify yourself and your family in respect to your culture/ethnicity, and be as specific as possible. For example, South Korean rather than Asian; or Cuban rather than Latino.
- Discuss the impact of your ethnic identity on your daily life and your development as a person. Discuss times when your ethnicity became a source of pride and times when it may have been a challenge?
- Discuss how your ethnicity plays out in your work life?
- How do your cultural experiences relate to specific topics and concepts discussed in the chapter and additional resources?
- How would you create a workplace training program that enhances sensitivity to and acceptance of cultural diversity? What would it look like? Be specific.
