STEREOTYPING
What is stereotyping? Exercise think about the
stereotypical image of a professional of your
choice
15
  • Stereotyping
  • The way we view others can often be determined by
    stereotypes that we have gained through our own
    experience
  • Stereotyping is usually insulting and plays on
    peoples fears and jealousies to spread a
    negative view of differences between people

16
Prejudice
  • In its most unproductive form, stereotyping
    can lead to prejudice
  • The tendency to see differences as weaknesses
  • THE EYE OF THE STORM

17
How we form Perceptions
  • Most of our perceptions are formed by
    associating with people who are similar to us in
    race, ethnicity, social status, education,
    lifestyle etc.
  • Workforce America, Loden Rosener (1991)

18
Discrimination
  • How does society treat this group?
  • What assumptions and attitudes lie behind their
    treatment?

19
Discrimination
  • When we start to make judgements about
    individuals based on our views about their
    culture, gender, race, lifestyle, age etc. rather
    than on their unique abilities, or personality or
    character, then we are in danger of acting in a
    discriminatory way

20
FORMS OF DISCRIMINATION
  • Indirect Discrimination when conditions or
    requirements are set out that exclude members of
    an Equality Target Group - in relation to jobs or
    services.
  • Direct Discrimination is where a person is
    treated less favourably purely because of their
    sex, race, sexual orientation, religion or
    belief, or disability.
  • Positive discrimination is where one person is
    favoured over another because they are from an
    under represented group.

21
DISCRIMINATION CONTINUED
  • Victimisation is where an employee is
    discriminated against for making a complaint,
    intending to make one, or supporting another
    person making a complaint. Examples may include
    Denying promotion or training Sending to
    Coventry Refused requests for time
    off. Harassment is where someones dignity is
    violated or an intimidating, hostile, humiliating
    or offensive environment is created by unwanted
    conduct.

22
INSTITUTIONAL RACISM
The collective failure of an organisation to
provide an appropriate and professional service
to people because of their colour, culture or
ethnic origin.
23

language. Not concerned or deliberately malicious

ly tries to be sensitive in use of language.
