Diversity Issues; Connecting Local to Global

Diversity Issues; Connecting Local to Global

Cultural diversity in a society ascertains a deeper level of understanding towards each other. Individuals embracing diversity shows multiculturalism and positive aspects of interaction in socialism. Human beings develop a perception based on what one is exposed to. For instance, a child might be exposed to a particular type of group, whereby oneself develops an understanding that is built on the group. When the individual interacts with a different group, one succumbs a limited perception, that might jeopardize socializing aspects. Cultural diversity in institutes develop ethnicity as a community and establish substantial trusts amongst each other (Taylor, 30). The following context highlights diversity-based issues and how the aspects are accorded together from a global to an international perspective.

Despite the programs implemented by numerous groups on acquiring knowledge on how different societies deal with diversity have become successful, little facts are still depicted on how social interactions affect people’s thinking and action. Ethnic divisions are derived from social and political constrictions, which pose as a subject to change. The quality ascertained in social interactions across borders is accorded with anticipation of how the aspects are portrayed out. Institutes, to be precise, show a different level of diversification in heterogenous places. The surrounding brings all the elements needed to build multiculturalism.

In as much as what is highlighted, based on diversity aspects, depict a nature of mutual interaction and paradoxical socialism. Religious diversity, to be precise, is one of the chief elements that one might encounter in institutions. Learning fraternities like colleges embark on multiple program checks to ensure that the institute runs a favorable program to every diverse group of scholars.

Field Setting

A cognitive analysis was conducted at the institute to pinpoint certain aspects that generated diversity-based problems. A series of procedures encountered with a degenerated character of validating the cause. Participants were assessed through methodology practices such as interviews, through questionnaires, and random tests. Diversification acts as an essential social factor in institutes (Taylor, 26). However, individuals succumb to certain practices whereby one embraces another person’s behavior with the aim of getting to understand the individual. Most of the assessment was done at the institute’s mezzanine section, where rooms suitable for the one-on-one evaluation or gathering are in the equal division. Accommodating the possible outcomes based on the previous essay takes on derivative measures with a substantial amount of reviews and placement procedures.

Information perspective argues that group diversity enhances decision making with quality aspects towards individuals. The characters interpret the concept of having a potential solution from an ‘enormous pool,’ which examines the ideas that will ascertain solutions. Various concepts incorporated only ascertain the possible outcome of the diversity-based problem. Deep-level diversity depicts intragroup differences in terms of personality and attitudes. The concept can help in establishing effective interactions within an institute or workplace and neutralize diversification. In the field setting, the participant was categorized as a male Muslim. Based on the analysis conducted at the institute, the fraternity’s organization was Christian based, making most of the institutes’ program to have a derivative approach from the case. On the other hand, the deep-level diversity might also result in individuals creating a more complex salient for the population which becomes challenging to control.

Social problems at the Institute

Religious Identity

The participant portrayed an aspect that is termed as a diversity issue in society. The rationalization was depicted within the case. American tradition creates a window for religious diversity since individuals consider language as a unifying role in the organization (Lauring, 156). The concept enables one to explore diverse religious backgrounds with a sense of belonging based on an individual’s choice. The point of interest for the case entails a prevalence aspect of the institute’s position, whereby the fraternity’s preference and an idea of incorporating one religion as a symbol of national unity are dependable on the institute’s regulations.

The subject interviewed depicted a hesitating attitude since the fraternity has rules that require scholars to pose a decent picture; one that prevents beards. Asian religions and society norms enhance body hair. The aspect of growing beards is also common in Muslim communities. Despite the rules and regulations entailed within institutes, the American laws are familiar with the cultural preferences towards life and the practices and norms. Succumbing elements of discrimination are observed in the participant’s assessment, whereby the placement of irrational regulations and rules violates constitutional amendments.


The participant is subjected to racism when the Institute implements regulations which only favor the dominant religion. As depicted in the interview, quantifying the elements which build the symbol of unity needs an intriguing turnover of subjected individuals. The concept of prevailing cultural diversity requires solidarity as a society and not racial discrimination.

The Matrix of Domination

Society has to exist with multicultural concepts, portraying diversity and differences amongst the humankind. However, the elements result in racial biases, in conjunction with class structures and gender inequality. Such idealisms are generated due to the construction of power and dominance over another individual, with the sense of getting recognition. The matrix of domination depicts a caricature, that is entailed in an individual, in such a way that the multicultural existence of diversity drives one and getting recognition in a competitive society. Difference necessitates similar thinking and approach (Andersen, 7). When an individual is present with a new experience that is not similar to their own, one begins to compare and contrast with the sense that he creates ideologies towards the situation.

Racial profiling and class structure have been a case that subjects indigenous people from diverse background. For instance, the poststructuralism concept is considered to have contributed to creating race and class. The reason was that of the interrelations generated by colonialism together with postcolonialism, and political sections. Individuals were subdivided according to their racial background during this era. The charade treatment is what later turned out to be a long-term effect imposed on American society. There was an existence of a complex, cultural relations conjuncture in most times (Chowdhry, 11). The case of post-structuralism in return ended up generating the aspects of race and class, in that, mostly colored individuals were segregated from other races, whereby class dominated along the societal norms and ideologies of people. An individual might picture another different person subjected to these elements, and create a different perspective on one self’s mind, and thus portraying the aspects or race, gender and class existence (Andersen, 2).

Does Diversity Attribute Too?

The case of cognitive thinking affects individuals in groups, in that one begins to formalize an experience that their group doesn’t encounter. The scenario is the main result of gender discrimination. In as much as the case of gender, race and class are portrayed to targeted individuals, and the context depicts how these social elements affect every individual, despite their diverse cultural backgrounds. The context shifts focus on stereotyped groups such as the colored race and generalize the effect in such a way that, it clarifies that the elements affect all humankind at certain times, but only in the different direction (Lauring, 160).

Interview assessment

As depicted in the above analysis in the matrix of domination, one can describe the genesis of diversity issues such as race, and class to be based on stereotype aspects. The fraternity lacked solid reasons for implementation of biased regulation. The matter took a different turn in being condoned by the management in such a way that showed the administration to be based on racist individuals.


Connecting Local to Global

Diversity amongst the American society is a common aspect. In a historical concept, the matter of diversification commenced when post structuralism initiated. The industrial revolution attracted different groups of individuals from around the globe, with the aim of attaining the American Dream in the land of freedom and liberation. Different sections were categorized per the population’s identity and as result attainment of one commonality, a nation. However, when different people are brought together, multiculturalism prevails, but with negative aspects too. Stereotypes are generated based on such a concept, whereby one sees the other group with a different wrong perception, making the subject inferior.

The case of religion and race being posed as a diversity issue can be viewed with a global perspective. For instance, the participant’s views towards the matter are in conjunction with racial profiling from terrorist incidences. The 9/11 occurrence, to be precise, generated stereotypes towards the Muslim individuals, whereby Islam took a different turn and Western society embracing the religion with hesitations. A Muslim wearing beards raises suspicion in most places within the institute, as stated by the participant in an interview assessment. Starbucks often has instances whereby a ‘suspicious’ Muslim is handled without respect and torn off one self’s dignity. The victims were compensated by the management, which was after complaints were forwarded to court by individuals. Locally, the concept of paying victims facing the issue. People are often victimized by racial profiling of religious discrimination. During the apartheid era in South Africa, the parliament forbade a member of parliament from going in with Turbans or any other head wraps. Despite the concept of wearing head Turbans to be a religious practice or norm, the case depicts a nature of religious discrimination. As portrayed in the institute, both aspects entail the same elements of faith discrimination and failure of observing cultural diversification.


The human mind performs numerous decisions making, cognitive theories inspire that. In a world of different ideologies instilled on people’s mind, damage control becomes a hectic process, to which some individuals fail to agree with the method and how it is implemented in different occasion. One of the methods used to solve diversity issues entails a legal approach. Laws are created to govern the humankind and rectify unjust behaviors, to create fairness and justice amongst people’s lives. Unconstitutional and charade behavior like religious discrimination and racial profiling an inhumane act, that does not value and respect an individual’s dignity; hence the legal measures taken on such actions is strict since it involves violation of human rights.
