CHCDIV001 Work with diverse people Name Email address Assessment Case study Please read through the following case studies. Reflect on your learning and your own research within this unit. Prepare a response that responds to each of the issues presented below. Your responses must reflect your knowledge, skills, and application for this unit. Scenario 1 Danielle is the practice manager of a large dental practice in the city. She is the only female staffer at management level. The CEO often refers to her as the ‘office mum’ although no male manager is ever referred to as the ‘office dad’. He also expects her to handle office birthdays and always asks her to organise coffee for their monthly managerial meetings. Danielle is becoming really frustrated with these requests and the ‘office mum’ label. She tells her CEO of her concerns, and he responds by telling her that she is being ‘overly sensitive’. Do you believe that the CEO is displaying any sexist behaviour, or is Danielle being overly sensitive? Outline your reasons for your response. Outline at least three strategies that Danielle could use to curb this behaviour while still remaining respectful to her CEO and colleagues. The CEO is displaying sexist behaviour by referring Daniella as “office mum” which is shown by how none of her counterpart male managers are referred to as “office dad”. The CEO should be careful with the choice of words being used to avoid Daniella feeling frustrated over her concerns. The reaction towards Daniella’s concerns show a lack of care towards her feelings.
