Culture in the Workplace

Overview:

This lesson is intended to help students understand the importance of culture in the workplace and to dispel myths about the under-representation of minorities on the basis of qualifications alone. The lesson will demonstrate that the degree to which one is aligned with the dominant culture of an organization, greatly impacts his or her chances of advancement to decision-making positions. This lesson may be used as a standalone exercise; however, it also serves as a good follow-up session to an introductory lesson on diversity.
