Assignment 1: Race
As you work in the human services delivery sector, you will encounter people (both clients and colleagues) from different racial backgrounds.
In this assignment, you will critically think about how racial differences can impact the work equation between a service delivery provider and a service delivery recipient and also between the agency staff members.
Given what you have learned in Module 2 regarding race as socially constructed versus biologically constructed, post your responses to the following:
- Discuss whether there is a difference between the two.
- Elaborate on how race impacts the work equation between a service delivery provider and a service delivery recipient.
- Discuss how racial diversity impacts the work equation between agency staff members. Be specific in your responses and illustrate using examples. Support your points using scholarly sources.
