There are many pieces of legislation that are put in place to protect and safeguard vulnerable people; like Mrs Naidoo. I am going describe five pieces of legislation and regulations, and explain how they safeguard vulnerable adults.
The first artifact I have attached for Standard Four: Diversity is a diversity project completed during the spring of 2015 for ED444 Methods and Materials for Teaching Social Studies and ED447 Instructional Technology. This project consists of different resources to use when teaching Kindergarten Social Studies Standard Three. This standard requires students to describe how rules offer safety at home, school, and in the community. This diversity project demonstrates activities that aid in individual experiences.
“92 BLX The Beat of The Bay. This is DJ Rodsky” boomed the radio into my preschool classroom at St. Mary Catholic School. My best friend Emani's dad was featured on the radio that morning, and my teacher let the whole class tune in. While in may seem like an odd occurrence to listen to a rap station in a preschool setting, it highlights the attitude towards diversity that shaped my formative education. Instead of the hand-picked, curated diversity that sometimes plagues schools, this encounter demonstrates the raw, unalderterated diversity that kindles appreciation for all races, genders, backgrounds, or affiliations without any reservations.
The University of Southern California claims that its mission is to demonstrate an “enduring commitment to diversity of thought, experience, and people”. USC constitutes a significant portion of Los Angeles’s population and it is constantly expanding its reach on the surrounding area. In recent months, USC held its grand opening of University Village, UV, another massive addition to the campus. President Max Nikias claims that this construction will reinvigorate the neglected neighborhood, however this space is itself a contradiction to USC’s core statement on diversity because of its socioeconomic and cultural exclusivity. The university wiped out the international food court which stood before UV existed and replaced it
To increase diversity, employers are permitted to consider race or gender as a factor in selecting employees. Race differences in the workplace force diversification. I personally think that it is necessary. I would never think to hire or not hire someone, because of skin color or race differences. Hiring or not hiring someone, because they have a different skin color is just as wrong. However, because discrimination has occurred, history has created the need for laws to protect working class citizens. Breaking into classifications by race or gender is now common in the U.S. In making employment decisions, I do think that there are ethical factors that create exceptions to the rule. In particular, gender considerations playing an active
Diversity is a notion, when applied to the majority of circumstances, can create a positive conclusion. The trick to producing a positive outcome is often how the different aspects are brought together. Consider a classic dinner combination peas and carrots, the two colors look appealing and the two flavors comes together as one making a superb side dish. Now consider oil and water, these two substance are not often considered a good combination. Although, this is not always the case; olive oil and vinegar (which is water based) when mixed, come together into a delectable salad dressing. Diversity and inclusion should also apply to humans by bringing people together who are different it can creates a whole that is enhanced by the
To provide optimal care to an increasingly diverse population, all health care professionals must become culturally competent practitioners (Cohen, Gabriel, & Terrell, 2002). Diversity improves underrepresented minority groups thus preparing a culturally competent workforce with the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behavior required of a workforce to provide services to persons from a wide range of cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Supporting diversity assist to provide improved access to high-quality services for persons in society who remain underserved. Greater diversity amplifies the pool of practitioners and public policymakers available to accept management roles in various departments contribute to governmental efforts that address important
As our communities and workplaces become more diverse, it is important that we as leaders understand and communicate that diversity is here to stay. Diversity will continue to grow here and globally as well. “Ultimately, America’s answer to the intolerant man is diversity.” Robert Kennedy…I believe this should be implemented in any organization and applied to our country as well. We could learn so much from one another. Each individual has their own story and so much to share. I have to say that my ideal Employer when it comes to diversity and inclusion is the company that I work for. I believe ideal ways of having an inclusive environment is focusing on all areas of diversity, race, age, disability, gender, religion, Veterans,
The role of diversity in Computer Science (CS) has recently been brought into focus. Reports from top technology companies (e.g., Google, Facebook) indicate that we have a lot of work ahead of us to ensure truly diverse workforces in the technology sector. I was particularly troubled by two findings in these reports: (1) the incredibly low fraction of women relative to men (15-17% vs. 83-85%); and (2) underrepresentation of the “Hispanic” and “Black” communities (together less than 7%). Reading more about this topic helped me understand what the core issues were. One such issue, that needs to be tackled at the early stages of education, is that of getting more school children (especially from underrepresented populations) interested in CS.
Hope all of you like the project and get the contact information from your teammates!!! Trust me, it will be so much fun. I still remember my project from last year and because me and my teammates put lots of effort into it, we actually won the first prize. Be creative and feel free to ask me or Jamie any question.
“The weight of human domination has crushed the galaxy for too long. We will follow you wherever the flight may take us.”(Anderson 144)This quote relates to me because it reminds me of how slaves and african americans were treated horribly. like the alien species in the star wars universe were treated. It also talked a lot equality and there was a whole group in the star wars universe called the Diversity alliance dedicated to making peace between all species and their world a better

Black or White. Christians or Muslims. Girl, boy, gay or lesbian. Young or old. These are just some of the things that we can't forcily change. And for such kind of things that we can't change, maybe the best thing to do is to accept how diverse humanity is, and just adapt to it. How diverse we are is both a challenge and a strength in an organization - community, school, business. A challenge in the sense that we aren't alike so we don't think and act the same due to our different cultures, beliefs and others. On the other hand, it is a strength because our differences for example, can bring or give each one of us more insights on things and be able to learn something from one person to another. Our diversiveness doesn't lies on what we can perceived only. It goes deeply into one's personality, behavior and way of thinking. Diversity is not unknown to us. We interact with different kinds of people from different places everyday, whether in school or work. It is prevalent in an organization because basically, organizations are composed of people.
When America was founded, it was established on freedom and equality for all people. At first it was just religious freedom, but eventually freedom of speech, press, petition, and more. In time, America began to be known as a “melting pot” of cultures as more and more people came because they wanted this freedom; the more people who came though, the more problems America had. There were too many cultural discrepancies between people, and ultimately America, the country based on freedom and equality, faced challenges concerning diversity.
