Perceptions and Stereotyping
A good example of stereotyping that you have witnessed or have personally experienced. Present the event and explain why the stereotyping was wrong or hurtful.
After interviewing a male nurse with the Director of Nursing, the staff development nurse asked "So what do you think?" The Director of Nursing said "Let's hire him, this way no one can say we do not hire gays."
The perception is that he is gay just because he is a male nurse. As a leader there is no way after a short meeting you can determine this fact. The statement is wrong in so many ways and is very illegal.
