Promoting Equality and Valuing Diversity (05:14)


Dr. Neil Thompson talks about the meaning of equality in modern society and why it is important. He defines diversity and its connection to equality.

Understanding Human Complexities (08:21)

The PCS Analysis (personal, cultural, and structural) is a framework that Dr. Thompson uses to understand the complexities of discrimination and equality in the modern world.

Discrimination Within Culture (11:02)

Thompson discusses the cultural level; no one lives outside of a cultural context whether it be an organization, profession, religion, nation, or regional culture.

Social Divisions (05:53)

Structural circumstances can impact society; not everyone is born on a level playing field. Where a person is born gives him or her advantages or disadvantages.

Conclusion (01:59)

Thompson emphasizes three key points about equality and diversity—issues can be emotionally challenging, the price is high for mismanagement, and avoid oversimplifying the issues.
