1.What is meant by diversity?

It means understanding that each individual is unique, and recognizing our individual differences. These can be along the dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs, or other ideologies.

Feedback:
Andreea this is a great start to Unit 1 with a good answer explaining what is meant by diversity. People are all different and varied in the way they look, dress, behave, what they believe in, where they work and live, which sex they are and age group they belong to.

2. Describe the community you live in. Highlight some of the variations you may observe in terms of: * Interests
* Beliefs
* Ages
* Lifestyles
* Personal, social and cultural identities.

Diversity recognizes the value of difference, which can provide an organization with staff that possesses a unique range of attributes and characteristics. These include diversity in age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, religion or belief, marital status, political belief, socio economic background, color, nationality and ethnic origin.

The city where I live is a multi-racial and multi-cultural city supporting a diverse range of religions and communities. The city boasts various cultural centers and worship facilities that for most social and spiritual needs, including some notable landmarks such as a Church of Scotland and Roman Catholic Cathedrals, Hindu and Sikh temples, Synagogues, the Greek Orthodox Church and Mosques.

The people around me are of different ages and lifestyles allowing for a down to earth feel. There are young families and there are families that have been here for 20 years plus. 50% of the population are over 30 years of age (with 40% being in the age range 30 - 50 years of age), I believe that 30% of 16 - 74 year old in employment work in health, education & public administration. The community I live in is mostly professional adults who are active in maintaining a top notch school district, community support, and educational awareness of developing area projects. Next door to me are plenty of young kids; they are having a singing ritual every single Sunday morning, all are singing very loudly in choir. I never dared to ask why but I guess that all this kids and mothers are following a sort of religious stuff. I have also being observing down my road couple of pensioners that are doing their weekly shopping on every Saturday morning. So, in my community are living people with different ages.

As the community where I live is a diverse community, I have observed that people have different interests. Some people are interested to have a good Friday night out and some of them are interested to have a good Saturday night out. The Spanish community prefers the Friday night out because of the salsa club where everyone has a passion for Latin music. It is a real dance competition on the dance floor. The others are happy just to kill the time out...
