Workplace Scenario

 

Situation:

Workers at the council often gather in the meal room at lunch time for something to eat and a catch up with fellow workers.  A number of ethnic people work at the council and often sit together and talk which they tend to do in a language other than English. 

An ethnic man sitting in the meal room at a separate table overheard a conversation by three fellow colleagues sitting nearby.  The man overheard their conversation and thought that it was extremely derogatory to women as they were suggesting they are weak, uneducated and dominated by their husbands. This was not the first time he overheard these men and said they were often looking over at the ethnic group of men and laughing.

The man also complained to his supervisor about previous occasions that this group of workers also made racist comments about sporting teams in his presence.  

The supervisor told him that it was just harmless conversation and not to get worked up about it.  He should just concentrate on his own job and mind his own business and no formal complaint had been made to him about anything.

 

Consider:

·         Workplace polices and producers relating to diversity and discrimination

·         Workplace training

·         Communication strategies

·         strengths and differences that benefit both staff and the council

·         Opportunities for leadership in, and advocacy of workplace diversity.
