  • Workplace Diversity: differences among co-workers

    On the outside, we may be different, but on the inside, we are all human beings

    Individuals use past experiences to form perceptions about people and situations

  • Stereotyping occurs when we use misinformation to judge everyone who belongs to a specific group.

    For example, if we are walking through a park late at night and encounter three senior citizens wearing fur coats and walking with canes, we may not feel as threatened as if we were met by three high school-aged boys wearing leather jackets. Why is this so?

    Stereotypes evolve out of fear STEREOTYPES AND PREJUDICE
