Name: FerhinAkther Madonna Id: 250502 Subject: Medical Ethics-Assignment 1 Stanley Milgram Experiment At Yale University, Stanley Milgram a psychologist carried out the most famous study of obedience in psychology. The experiment was focused on the conflict between obedience to authority and personal ethics. In 1963, Milgram was interested in researching how far a person would go in obeying an instruction if it involved harming another person. Milgram was interested to see how an individual could be influenced by committing murders, for instance the Germans in World War II. Milgram wanted to investigate whether Germans were obedient to their superiors as that was the common explanation for assassinations in the Nazi in World War II.
Diversity may mean different things to different people. To me, diversity is exactly that, being different and unique. Diversity makes the world a beautiful place to be, and full of interesting and different people. The beauty of human civilization lies in its diverse groups and cultures.
As someone who ventured out of a small town that was very close-minded to the outside world, I understand the value of embracing different viewpoints. This is why the mission of Georgetown resonates with me. Additionally, advocating for the underserved and treatment of the whole person are principals that Georgetown values which directly align with my own. Throughout my life, I have been a part of and witnessed the consequences of being a minority.
Has gender inequality really changed since the 1930s? Why are men more powerful than women? Is there an equal pay between men and women? Who has a better job opportunity? Gender inequality has changed very little since the 1930s in terms of power, pay, and job opportunities.
Diversity is the state of being different. Different is good. Different changes the way people think and act. Imagine a world with everyone being the same. Everyone’s physical and mental traits were identical.
Life is extremely short, however not extremely simple. We as humans have been allotted such short amount of time to go from knowing just the basics of survival, to having survival being the last problem that we are worried about and attempt to learn every aspect this universe has to offer. We have been able to work with others despite the many differences throughout history, and learn from previous mistakes to avoid catastrophe in the future. Today’s society is granted the ability to affect the entire world and life as a whole, and we must continuously learn and gain experience from one another in order to succeed to the highest degree. This is why teaching our youth about acceptance of diversity is such an important task, especially individuals that will be the leaders for tomorrow’s organizations.
One of the social issues that sparked my interest in social work is the language barriers undocumented immigrants face on a daily basis. Immigration is an important aspect in social work because there is an immense amount of undocumented immigrants in need of assistance. The NASW code of ethics states, “Social workers are sensitive to cultural and ethnic diversity and strive to end discrimination, oppression, poverty, and other forms of social injustice.” (“National Association of Social Workers,” 2017). This demonstrates how ending discrimination is important in the code of ethics, in this instance it would be towards undocumented immigrants.
1. How has your interest in social work developed? How have significant life experiences, relationships and work experiences influenced the development of your interest in social work? I have always been drawn to help others; I always nurtured a great curiosity and interest in wanting to understand causes and mechanisms of social phenomena and the human mind. I felt that way since I was a child.
Diversity in the workplace, especially in the energy sector continues to grow with every passing decade. With that said, the industry still has need for vast improvement. I feel that there are many ways each company, as well as each individual, can contribute to enhancing workplace diversity. It is no surprise that the energy industry has, in my eyes, lacked diversity for many decades. Whether it is because of stereotypes that the industry has work only designed for men or that some races, genders, and nationalities are skeptical to enter a workplace environment that has previously been nearly dominated by white males in the United States, the fact remains that diversity is needed.
For decades the nursing industry has been stereotyped as a woman’s place. In 1975, the movie One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest displayed this in full force. In the movie, Randle McMurphy is sent from prison to a mental institution for evaluation. McMurphy has repeated problems with Nurse Ratched, the Head Nurse. This movie is a prime example of the stereotypical view of the nursing industry at that time because all the nurses are women and the orderlies are men.
Diversity Diversity is about celebrating and valuing people’s differences and looking at their differences in a positive way. When you recognise individual’s differences it can benefit society as everyone has something different about them and will be able to contribute something different. Examples of diversity • In relation to enjoying and achieving – Having gender specific toys available to be used by all and carrying out activities that reverse the usual gender roles. •
