Introduction to self-assessment in diversity workforce

Did you know, in United States; individualsstill legally are fired based on their sexual orientation in 29 states and their gender identity in 35 states? With that said, after completing my exercise in Pie Chart and Diversity Questionnaire (in Canas and Sondak, Chapter 11), I’ve came to realize that in our society we are very prejudices towards people as of this moment, some may not even realize their actions and the effects of the smallest thing can do to another person. There is constant discrimination everywhere ...view middle of the document...

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission was established by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to assist in the protection of US employees from discrimination. The law was the first federal law designed to protect most US employees from employment discrimination based upon that employees (or applicant's) race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. As time went by, the government has included few more statutes that would extend protection for more individuals, like for example; “Age Discrimination, Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 that targeted a ranger of disabilities ranging from paraplegia to down to syndrome to autism, lastly of course the Employment Non-Discrimination that targeted sexual orientation or gender identity”. Equal opportunity has changed the way businesses and organizations recruit, hire, and even act in the working environment. These laws were made to enforce against organizations or any individuals who violate any other employee’s rights, we thought this would help completely stop the issue but unfortunately after 30 years of its original established date of the law, society still go off discriminate employee’s by their sex, gender, race or religion.
The Signs of Sexual Orientation Discrimination
I recall a time when I was 19 years old; I was working in a mom and pop’s pharmacy store in downtown Brooklyn that is owned by a mid-30s Italian gentleman who happens to be a successful business owner but a poor choice manager controller for his stores. Even though our boss may have his plus sides, but his biggest flaws are how he approaches his current employees. Sure, he may be a great person when it comes down to getting paid on Holidays and employees extra pay bonuses, but that does not give him the right to violate employees by their sexual orientation. For example, we have a good amount of female pharmacy assistances who aid the pharmacist with the volume of prescription; the boss would sometimes come around the store and comment on one of the girls who happen to be a homosexual. Some comments he has stated in past might have some filter or control but on some days he would cross the line and say some absurd sayings that would make the female worker feel very uncomfortable and self-conscious about her sexuality. Here is one small comment he stated multiple times in the past, “John Doe: what’s the matter? Not dressing up like a guy today?” You thought that was bad, here’s one that crosses the line that violates multiple equal employment opportunity, “John Doe: So Jane Doe, being that we all what kind of people your attracted too, how you plan on having children? Does your parents approve of this abomination”. The last line he stated with humorous tone, he made it seem like it was funny and okay to state that, but what he doesn’t know that everyone around you all turned around and thought, “Did he really ask her that?!”. The poor girl had to hide her emotions away with a fake smile in front of...
