Embracing cultural diversity Never make people from different cultures feel they and their opinions are not valued. Communicate in a way that is appropriate for each person’s abilities and age. b. Briefly describe discrimination in the following contexts; age, disability, racial, sex. Answer: Age- Age discrimination is when a person is treated less favourably than another person in a similar situation, because of their age. Disability- Disability discrimination is when a person with a disability is treated less favourably than a person without the disability in the same or similar circumstances. Racial- Racial Discrimination Act 1975 (Cth) covers discrimination based on race, colour, descent, and national or ethnic origin. It also protects those who may be discriminated against based on their association with people of a particular ethnicity. The Racial Hatred Act 1995 (Cth) was added to the Racial Discrimination Act in 1995 and provides an avenue for people to complain about racist behaviour that offends, insults, humiliates or intimidates others in public. Exceptions to the law include when the behaviour is a matter of public interest (such as a newspaper report on racially-based violence), or is part of an academic discussion which is not malicious or spiteful. These exceptions often involve rights to free speech. Sex Discrimination - Sex Discrimination Act 1984 (Cth) The Sex Discrimination Act 1984 explains that it is unlawful to discriminate against someone based on their sex, marital status, pregnancy or potential pregnancy. It sets out laws against sexual harassment, as well as dismissal from work based on family duties, including pregnancy. Sexual harassment is included in the Act because it is a form of discrimination to treat a person unfairly because of their sex. c. What legislation exists, both nationally and state/territory based to help protect people from discrimination? Answer: There are federal, state and territory laws in Australia to protect people from discrimination and harassment. These are: The Age Discrimination Act 2004 Australian Human Rights Commission Act 1986 Disability Discrimination Act 1992 Racial Discrimination Act 1975 The Sex Discrimination Act 1984 d.

Never make people from different cultures feel they and their opinions are not valued. Don’t speak loudly and slowly to people from another culture - it may seem like you think they are stupid. Ensure you treat people with different gender preferences equally.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
