SLP Assignment

In a 2-page submission, not counting the cover and references
pages, respond to the following questions on the Cultural Identifier
Worksheet regarding your knowledge of your own and your
employer’s corporate culture and cultural diversity.

This assignment is about you, so feel free to write in the first

Cultural Identifier Worksheet

1. Name three cultural identifiers that you identify with most.
Describe in detail how you identify with these three.

2. Which of these cultural identifiers do you see in the people with
whom you work or play?

3. Do you consider your place of work as diverse? In what ways?

4. From the short list you made in #1, select the one that you
identify with the most.

5. What is it that you like the most about this cultural identifier?

6. From the list above, select the one identifier that you identify with
the least. Explain why it does not fit you.

7. Do you see the cultural identifier in #6 in those with whom you
work or play?

8. List some stereotypes about your culture that do not apply to you.

9. The following is a short list of some of the ways people respond
to others’ cultural and diversity identifiers either through their
thoughts, words, or deeds.

Prejudice–an attitude about another person or group of people
based on stereotypes

Discrimination–an action or behavior based on prejudice

Racism–prejudice or discrimination based on race/ethnicity

Sexism–prejudice or discrimination based on gender

In discussions of these terms, an issue that sometimes arises is
that prejudice and discrimination can be positive. It is important to
note that when these issues are discussed in the context of cultural
diversity, they are generally considered negative and very easy to
identify. In what instance would prejudice or discrimination be a
positive? Why is it so hard to identify the positive ones?

You are required to have at least one high-quality peer-reviewed
academic reference to support a discussion of a topic in this
assignment. These are always found in the Trident Online Library.
Sometimes you can find them in Google Scholar. Those often have
to be paid for, but the ones in our library are free to use.

Note: A URL (website address) is NOT a reference. A reference
always contains four parts: author, publication date, article title, and
the source of the article. Sometimes there is no author, but the APA
manual tells you what you can put in that spot instead, such as the
first few words of the article title. The source for a high-quality peer-
reviewed journal article is the journal. When you find an article in
the Library, you can click the quote (”) icon, select the APA format
from the drop-down list, and copy/paste the reference onto your
reference list. You may have to clean it up because they are not
always input into the database correctly.

Upload your assignment to the SLP 4 Dropbox. Be sure to
review your Turnitin Originality report. If the score is over 15%, you
may not be writing in your own words and you will need to contact
your professor and arrange to revise and resubmit your
assignment. Changes cannot be made to the submission, however,
if it has already been graded by your professor. Always check your
originality score after submitting your papers. If your score is above

12/26/23, 5:30 PM SLP – MGT302 Organizational Behavior and Teamwork (2023NOV06FT-2)


15%, take a look at the originality report to see where you forgot to
cite your sources. Always use quotation marks to indicate that
material has been copied directly from the source. Also, the citation
for all quotes must include the page number where you found the
quote. These are two areas where most students get dinged on
their score.

While it is not mandatory, you are encouraged to submit all your
assignments into the practice dropbox. If you do this, you can make
any needed changes prior to submitting the assignments for
