Unit 3 Race and Ethnic Identity Developmental Models This assignment is the first of two presentations you will complete for this course. Each presentation focuses on specific course competencies to allow you to demonstrate your growing understanding of key areas of competency in the course. The assignment addresses the following course competencies: Competency 1: Critically evaluate theories, methods, and research in cross-cultural awareness. Competency 4: Explain how staying abreast with contemporary cultural diversity issues and research will improve the delivery of public safety. Competency 5: Communicate in a manner that is scholarly, professional, and consistent with expectations for members of the public safety and emergency management professions. Instructions Utilizing the key theories, methods, and salient points presented in Winant’s article in this unit, create an educational PowerPoint presentation that discusses how you as a manager can prevent some of the challenges the author spoke about. In addition: Compare the various developmental models presented. Identify gaps in the models and current thoughts that may not properly reflect race and ethnic identity. Summarize why Winant believes that “the global racial situation remains volatile and undertheorized” (2006, p. 988). Explain if you agree or disagree with this belief, supporting your position. Examine Winant’s belief of the major negative effects and challenges of discrimination on diverse cultures. Examine how awareness of worldwide patterns of race and racism might enhance public safety research and delivery of public safety.
