Note: This Assignment is also a Major Assessment for this course.It is time now to examine and articulate the knowledge and understanding you have gained in the past weeks, and synthesize your thinking based on what you have learned and experienced in this course.
First, review the four core propositions which form the context of this course:
Diversity starts with you: You play many different roles in life, called “social identities,” and together these social identities make up who you are. Through your social identities you represent human diversity.A person’s diverse self comes to life, evolves, and exists within the milieu of the “family.” Each “family” is diverse in itself; each has its own different family culture(s); and family culture(s) interact dynamically with the diverse world.Conflicts and inequities arise when diversity is conceptualized and experienced as a “problem” and when individuals and/or institutions resist/are in opposition to diversity.Equity and social justice are more likely attainable when diversity is conceptualized and experienced as an opportunity.
