The Ashford University Self Reflection covers seven domains of growth, learning and development. The seven domains of growth, learning, and development are Critical Thinking, Self Awareness, Communication, Diversity, Citizenship, Membership and Leadership, and Relationships. The two domains that I am going to write about are the domains of Diversity and Membership/Leadership. Diversity: an understanding and appreciation of differences, and the identification of positive contributions among people and groups. Diverse peoples and groups include, but are not limited to: differing values, cultures, ethnicities, politics, religion, gender, age and a host of others. But diversity goes beyond mere acceptance of difference, which in many cases may be only tolerance. Indeed, moving beyond simple tolerance to understanding allows individual members of a social group the capacity to appreciate the positive contribution different people can make to the collective good of that social group, whether limited to small groups of individuals or on a global scale. I have personal relationships with several people who are ethnically different from me. For example I have several African-American or European-American friends. One of my first cousins married a German girl named Elizabeth Keim and we are all South Indians from Hyderabad. In a class or among my friends I will advocate for diversity and social justice. For example I make sure that everyone is treated the same way. I can tell anyone what diversity is. For example I have a "standard answer" when someone asks me about diversity. I talk with other people who are different than me about our differences. For example I will talk with someone who is ethnically different from me to try to understand the world from their point of view. I act on the values of diversity and social justice. For example I work with an organization or with my church to help others. I go beyond simple diversity to act and think more complexly. For example I work hard to include many types of differences such as gender, ethnicity, social class, morals, and personality when I form opinions or work with other people in class or hang out with my friends. I value differences between people as part of the overall human experience. For example I know that we are not a melting pot where people who are different can come to be seen as "all the same." I know that people are different and that these differences are important. A few of my relatives married Italian and German guys. One of my cousins on my dad’s side married a North Indian girl named Zarna. Many of my friends are in interracial relationships. For example, Sri married Chris, Laxmi married Paul, Deep married Cherie, Shyam married Renee, Bhakar married Tammy, Bob married Sheryl, Lavanya married Dave, Vinay married Alountith, and Anu married Marty. Workplace diversity is a people issue, focused on the differences and similarities
