He is unable to attend this time, Dave has his own work function and Tom always attends them. A couple of days later, Tom is in the lunch room telling a colleague about Dave’s work function and how much of a good time they had. Two staff get up and leave the kitchen during this chat. The colleague tells Tom it’s fantastic that Dave’s work is so accepting, and rolls their eyes in the direction of those who departed the room.

Martin, 58, is sitting in a conference room being interviewed for a job. It is all going well, but then one interviewer asks how old he is, as his date of birth wasn’t indicated on his resume. Martin refuses to give his age – he states that his age is not an indicator of whether he can do the job well, but his work experience, knowledge and strong references should be what proves his abilities. Martin does not get the job. A friend who works in the organisation tells him that they employed a 25-year-old female because they felt a ‘younger person with a soft approach’ would be best for the position.

They approach a table and start to sit down. An employee quickly meets them and quietly asks them to leave. Cathy is taken aback and asks why. The employee states that pets are not permitted inside. Cathy says that Giovanni’s ‘pet’ is clearly a guide dog and they are allowed in the premises – health regulations have exemptions for guide dogs.

With the urging of his friends, he decides to call the last workplace his applied to and ask why he wasn’t considered for an interview. He is put through to someone called Bri, who says, ‘Oh Umair, that’s right. I heard about you. Yes, the manager didn’t want to put your application through further because they thought some of our elderly clients might be unsettled by a Muslim on the staff.’ Umair hangs up in shock – he can’t believe what he has just heard!

Task Summary: Complete the questions that follow each case study.

What do I need in order to complete this assessment?

  • Access to textbooks and other learning materials
  • Access to a computer and the Internet (if you prefer to type your responses).
  • Access to a copy of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

When do I do this task?

  • You will do this task your own time.
  • Write in the date of submission as advised by your assessor: ____________________

what do I need to do if I get something wrong?

If your assessor marks any of your answers as incorrect, they will talk to you about resubmission. You will need to do one of the following:

  • Answer the questions that were incorrect in writing and resubmit entire assessment.
  • Answer the questions that were incorrect verbally.

Instructions:

Case Study 1 – Team conflict
A team of community services workers is experiencing conflict. There is an Aboriginal worker on the team (Barry), a Muslim worker (Ahmed) and two white Australian workers (Janice and Julia). It started when Ahmed accused Barry of being lazy and rude – ‘He never rushes, even when we are rushed off our feet and he doesn’t even look me in the eye when he talks to me.’ Barry retaliates by accusing Ahmed of taking time off all the time to ‘pray on his stupid prayer mat’. Janice responds by saying, ‘For God’s sake, why can’t you just be like the rest of us?’ Janice and Julia get caught up in it with, both Ahmed and Barry complaining all the time about each other and trying to get them to take sides. Their conflict is impacting on their clients and colleagues.
  •  
  1. There are a range of issues that are causing difficulties within this work team. List each one you can identify. For each issue you identify, indicate the cultural differences that are being misunderstood among the team members.
 
  • What could you suggest to help this team resolve their differences in a culturally sensitive manner? List at least one strategy.
 
  •  
  • Imagine Barry complains to management about the time Ahmed takes to pray. Ahmed puts forth a suggestion that his prayer time is taken as break times, and he still works a full day – just a longer one than his colleagues. Management refuses the suggestion as if he gets special treatment, everyone will want special treatment.
  • What further issue has now occurred in this workplace?
 
  • Now let’s imagine Ahmed’s suggestion is successful. However, Barry continues to complain and encourages others to make fun of Ahmed during his time of prayer. Julia is very uncomfortable about what is happening.
  • As an employee, what is Julia’s responsibility in this situation?
 
  •  
  • Review the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. What Article/s are being breached in this scenario?
 
Case Study 2 – Fadi
Fadi has just come into full-time residential care. Fadi tells his son that the food is mainly western style, is very dull and often tough. As he is a Muslim, Fadi does not eat pork. The staff always provide another alternative when pork is on the menu but yesterday, when pork sausages were on the menu, the only alternative was fish – which Fadi has a strong aversion to and cannot eat without being ill. When he said he couldn’t eat the sausages or the fish, he was told by staff that he would have to have a Vegemite sandwich. Fadi’s son is shocked – this is hardly enough for the main meal of the day! Fadi’s son encourages his father to complain, but Fadi says he doesn’t want to cause trouble, he is new and is still trying to settle in. Fadi’s son decides to put in a formal complaint about the food that is served to his father.  The manager explains that there are many different nationalities and it is impossible for every cultural food requirement to be catered for all the time. However, the kitchen is keen to help out as much as they can so long as it is within their tight budget, therefore this is why Fadi was given a sandwich.
  1. As a client, what rights does Fadi have that are being breached?
 
  • What process should be undertaken to investigate this complaint in a culturally sensitive manner?
 
  • Suggest three strategies that might solve Fadi’s problem.
 
Case Study 3 – Joan
Joan is a new, Aboriginal carer at Elise’s service. Lately Joan has had a couple of days off work, and has also had a few days where she has started work later than others in her team. Hani, another carer who is also one of Elise’s good friends, begins to gossip about Joan at lunchtime. She says that Joan excludes herself because she is always so quiet and avoids eye contact with people. Hani doesn’t like the fact that Joan is new but gets special treatment – no one else comes in late and takes time off, especially in their first two months at a new job! Elise is not impressed by Hani’s behaviour and decides to remove herself from the lunch group. She instead begins to spend some of her lunchtimes with Joan and some different carers. She learns that Joan takes time off to help with the care of one of her Aunties, who is very ill. One afternoon Joan approaches Elise and tells her that she will be taking time off work due to Sorry Business. Elise is not sure what this means, but does not want to appear ignorant and gives Joan her best wishes – she assumes it must not be good news due to the word ‘sorry’. Joan says that their supervisor is very compassionate and she is lucky to work for a company that respects her cultural traditions, but says that some of the staff make her feel shame. The next day, Hani is talking negatively about Joan again. Elise has had enough, she decides to research Aboriginal culture so she educate Hani before she gets herself into trouble.
  1. Using your knowledge of Aboriginal culture, explain:
  2. Why Hani’s opinion of Joan’s approach to communication is incorrect and inappropriate.
 
  • Why Joan was caring for her Auntie.
 
  • Sorry Business and how Joan, her family and community would mourn.
 
  •  
  • Why Joan’s community has a tradition to not say the name of the deceased for some time.
 
  • What impact is Hani’s behaviour having on Joan? What did Joan mean about feelings of shame?
 
  • How do you think that Elise is contributing to a culturally safe and culturally competent workplace?
 
  • How should the workplace support Joan in terms of her absences?

You are to write a reflective report that covers each item below. You can use the headings provided below to separate your discussions. You must cover each bullet point.

Remember that cultural sensitivity and competence is not just shown in how you speak and interact with others, but how you write about different cultures and your opinions and perspectives.

1:  Your own culture

  • Discuss your cultural/social background and that of your family. What language, policies/structures and customs are relevant to your own culture? How do you think your own background impacts on people from backgrounds/cultures different to your own?
  • How do your cultural beliefs, values and experiences affect your own behaviour, your relationships with others and your social expectations of others from different cultures?
  • How do you think your culture has impacted Australian society – consider now and its impacts in the future? Do you think there has been positive change?
  • What changing practices to Australia’s political, economic and social landscape do you believe have directly impacted your culture?
  • Consider what you have learned during this unit of competency. What cultural biases or assumptions did you have before undertaking this unit?

2:  Diversity in the workplace

Note to the student: where you refer to specific colleagues, supervisors or clients, do not identify them by name. You may like to use ‘Colleague A’ or ‘Client 1’ or similar.

  • Provide some detail about your workplace (or the service you are doing your placement at). How diverse is this workplace in terms of staff and client base? Consider race, gender, sexual identity, religious and spiritual beliefs and other areas that define diversity in your response.
  • How do you, in your day-to-day work activities, show that you value and respect people from different cultures and backgrounds to your own? Provide at least three examples.
  • How culturally competent is your workplace? Give a reason for your ratings.
  • How do you think your ability to build professional relationships with your colleagues and clients encourages a culturally safe work environment?
  • How does your own cultural background affect your communication style and delivery in the workplace? Have you been involved in a cross-cultural misunderstanding with anyone in the workplace, or experienced a difficult situation that stemmed from diversity?

If yes, explain the situation and the strategies you used to bring it to a respectful, sensitive resolution.

If no, explain a situation you have either seen occur between others in the workplace, or have heard about. Discuss the strategy used to deal with the situation – do you agree with the way in which it was handled, or would you have done it differently?

  • What is one limitation or barrier you feel you have when working with people from backgrounds or cultures different to your own? What do you think you can do to remove the barrier or address the limitation?
  • What frameworks, approaches and instruments are used in your workplace to not only champion human rights, but to also adhere to legislative and ethical requirements? In your response, ensure you are also referring to frameworks and procedures that deal with discriminatory practices and behaviours.
  • What interpreter services does your workplace use or make available to its staff and clients? What is the process used? How does your workplace ensure that the situation requires an interpreter, and that the person’s communication needs are met?
  • What imagery is used in your workplace to assist with a culturally competent and culturally safe workplace?
