The Penn State Health 22-Day Inclusion Challenge
WEEK 2 – Theme: Understanding Differences   

June 11: Weekend activities to wrap up our Understanding Differences Week 

This week, we have learned about a number of aspects of diversity, some of which you may not have thought about as diversity. For this weekend, we have an opportunity to understand how differences can result in biases. 

Activities:  

  • Read: The book, “Biased: Uncovering the Hidden Prejudice That Shapes What We See, Think and Do.   
    • NOTE:  The health system diversity office has purchased a limited number of this book for those who want to participate available for those who want to participate but cannot acquire the book because of cost.  For more information, contact the office at diversity@pennstatehealth.psu.edu. 
  • Watch: Stream the 42-minute documentary “West and East, Cultural Differences” through YouTube here, to understand how cultural differences can impact our perceptionsPlease note: Some links may not be accessible on clinical workstations. Employees can view them on a nonclinical workstation or their personal device. 
  • Cook: A weekend would not be complete without trying something new, so we have included a Filipino dish to try called Adobo sa Gata, also known as chicken adobo with coconut milk.  

Please note: Some links may not be accessible on clinical workstations. Employees can view them on a nonclinical workstation or their personal device.
