Layers of Diversity: Part II

NOTE: You will only receive a certificate of completion if you do the tutorial online.

This tutorial continues the discussion of the Four Layers of Diversity Model. It focuses on the last two layers, the External Dimension and the Organizational Dimension. The External Dimension includes aspects of our lives which we have some control over, such as marital status, geographic location, educational attainment, and income. All of these aspects affect our health decisions. Some of the aspects are hard to change, and they might act as barriers to making healthy decisions. The Organizational Dimensions includes aspects of culture found in a work setting. These too can become barriers. Advocacy is introduced as a way to possibly help people overcome the barriers resulting from these layers of diversity.
