ESSAY  #1  –  IDENTITY  AND  DIVERSITY

CONTEXT  /  This  essay  is  a  reflection  on  your  multifaceted  social  identity  at  this  time  in  your  life  and  how   you  are  beginning  to  understand  yourself  in  a  diverse  world  as  you  prepare  to  launch  into  your  imagined   best  future.  In  this  essay,  identify  the  personal  and  social  characteristics  of  your  life  according  to   relevant  and  valued  diverse  group  memberships,  i.e.,  ethnicity,  race,  gender,  national  origin,  religious   affiliation,  political  preference,  economic  status,  abilities,  interests,  educational  and  professional   aspirations,  etc.  This  will  be  a  first-­‐person  narrative  reflecting  on  the  question:  Who  am  I  and  how  can  I   understand  and  contribute  to  a  diverse  workplace?     The  essay  should  be  a  personal  reflection  on  your  present-­‐day  social  identity.  It  should  not  be  limited  to   a  literal  telling  of  each  demographic  or  social  group  with  which  you  might  be  affiliated.  Your  social   identity  is  an  accumulation  and  integration  of  diverse  and  multifaceted  connections,  experiences  and   social  relationships  that  make  you  who  you  are  as  a  person,  and  provides  you  with  a  sense  of  social   belonging.  In  other  words,  what  makes  you  unique  and  complex  as  a  human  being?  Also,  how  would  you   imagine  your  emerging  social  identity  in  such  a  way  that  you  will  become  more  connected,  relevant,   interesting  and  effective  in  a  future  business  or  career  setting?  The  readings  from  the  first  two  weeks  of   class  provide  the  background  for  this  prompt.  It  is  expected  that  your  essay  will  include  reference  to   these  works  as  evidence  of  your  understanding.     ESSAY  PROMPT  /  Who  am  I?  What  is  my  social  identity:  from  which  groups  do  I  derive  my  values,   interests,  preferences,  biases  and  commitments?  How  does  my  identification  with  these  groups  help   me  achieve  and/or  limit  me  today?  How  might  my  developing  social  identity  help  me  to  create  future   opportunity,  contribute  to  a  diverse  workplace  and  point  the  way  ahead  in  my  professional  life?     REQUIREMENTS
