In the Week 2 readings, we learn that the self is a distinct identity that sets us apart from others. There are a variety of diversity dimensions that make us unique, including race, gender, religion, age, and class. In addition, many of our identities intersect, and depending on the environment or social context, can be variously prominent.
- Ch. 4 of Sociology in Modules challenges us to think of our personal identity and factors that influence how we are socialized, as well as how we socially engage. How would you describe yourself in terms of three prominent identity characteristics?
- Share an example of a time when one of your diversity dimensions was more prominent than others. What made that specific diversity dimension stand out?
- Share a time when one of your diversity dimensions conflicted with another.
- How do your multiple diversity dimensions show up in the workplace? Are some of your diversity dimensions more prominent than others in the workplace setting?
