Insensitivity, Ignorance or Misunderstandings That Are Experienced As Discrimination

Sincere efforts to establish effective communication is of a great priority in an environment that there are different cultures and ideologies. Necessarily the speaker has to dedicate more time for clarifying his or her words and actions instead of just assuming assumptions. It is also important for the listener to make sure that he or she understands the true meaning of the spoken statements very well and to ask about any unclear ideas. Misunderstandings, confusions, conflicts, and loss of trust usually arise when there is no effective communication.Besides having more common knowledge, increased understandings about various racial, ethnic, and cultural conflicts in addition to strengthing the communication skill, it is of great importance to have good acceptance and a better understanding of the diversity in TIU’s community.


The efficiency and work quality of any individuals can be affected by discriminative actions being done against them or their colleagues.Since students and trainees rely on the ones that teach them and employees depend on their employers and administrators, this dependence makes them concerned about reporting any discrimination that they encounter even if it was in a friendly attitude, so most of the time they stay silent while silence can be interpreted as acceptance.When colleagues, who are of similar or more powerful status, prefer to overlook disrespect, it is little confusion that those less dominant decide to choose to be quiet. Although, people who stay silent still express the feeling of being frustrated and disappointed with themselves and with the condition.
