Stereotyping and Diversity

Most of us resort to stereotyping when dealing with management, colleagues, suppliers, regulators, and clients. As Steve, Dion, and Barney explain, it doesn’t matter where we come from, or how educated we believe ourselves to be, everyone at some time is guilty of forming blanket opinions based on shallow perceptions. Carol winces when she sees Dion arriving for his first day on the job, in nightclub gear. Sam and Sanjay mock Serena’s apparent “singleton” status. Prompted by Serena’s concern, Marcus sets up a stereotyping training session, asking everyone to wear a silly hat. But the staff end up attacking Casey over her choice of hat.Please note: These videos are designed to provoke discussion and response. They are fast-paced, short, character-driven TV style comedies that take a new approach to reaching today's learners. By laughing, discussing, sharing outrage, and reacting to the behaviors on screen, we can use the resulting feelings and thoughts to develop a clearer shared view of how we want our teams to behave and to better manage these types of situations. These programs partner well with the "Switch On" and/or "Workplace Excellence" series, also by Seven Dimensions.This program does not include a quiz. To achieve a completed status in the learning management system, you must view the video in its entirety.
