A CALD workplace refers to a culturally and linguistically diverse workplace, where employees come from different countries, areas in Australia, and follow different religions.

B. Following policies and procedures

By following legislation, an organization ensures that it is complying with laws and regulations that promote diversity and prevent discrimination. Following policies and procedures also contributes to diversity by implementing guidelines that promote equal opportunities and inclusion. Consulting in policy reviews allows for input from diverse perspectives, ensuring that policies are fair and inclusive. Showing respect and empathy towards others creates an inclusive and welcoming environment for people from different backgrounds. Concealing one's own culture may hinder diversity efforts as it discourages individuals from expressing and celebrating their unique identities.

C. Limit discussions on discrimination with staff
Explanation
Limiting discussions on discrimination with staff is not a way to create a fair workplace according to the Australian Human Rights Commission. Open and honest discussions about discrimination are important in addressing and preventing it. By limiting these discussions, the organization may not be able to effectively address and resolve discrimination issues, which can lead to an unfair workplace environment.

### The hand shake is a universal gesture of respect?

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement "The hand shake is a universal gesture of respect" is false. While handshakes are commonly used as a sign of respect in many cultures, it is not universally recognized as such.

### Social behaviours of drinking alcohol and humour are universal?

The statement suggests that social behaviors of drinking alcohol and humor are universal. However, this is not true as social behaviors can vary greatly across different cultures and societies. While drinking alcohol may be common in some cultures, it may be prohibited or less prevalent in others. Similarly, humor can be subjective and what is considered funny in one culture may not be in another. Therefore, it is incorrect to claim that these social behaviors are universal.

### Having empathy with someone is the same as agreeing with them?

• A.

True

• B.

Having empathy with someone means understanding and sharing their feelings, but it does not necessarily mean agreeing with them. Empathy allows us to connect with others on an emotional level and understand their perspective, even if we may have different opinions or beliefs. It is possible to empathize with someone without endorsing or supporting their ideas or actions. Therefore, the statement that having empathy with someone is the same as agreeing with them is false.

This can lead to misunderstandings and hinder effective communication. On the other hand, using appropriate body language, actively listening, and using drawings or images are all strategies that can help overcome communication barriers by enhancing understanding, engagement, and clarity in communication.

### Tick all of the following issues that contributed to the following misunderstanding:Carla was a receptionist at the front desk of busy medical practice. Two different patients arrived at the same time, Mr. Ho and Mr. Ko, while Carla was on the telephone. She nodded to them both and gave each a pre-set clipboard and pen while continuing her telephone conversation. Carla was mindful that the doctors were running late and instructed Judy, a nurse, to take Mr Ho to a clinic room where he can complete the form there and start to collect his blood to help them stay to schedule. Judy nodded in agreeance while Carla helps with another patient with their payments.  Soon afterwards, the nurse was surprised to learn that she had prepared the wrong patient.

• A.

Being impatient

• B.

No empathy

• C.

Being closed-minded

• D.

Distractions

• E.

Poor Listening

A. Being impatient
D. Distractions
E. Poor Listening
Explanation
The misunderstanding in this scenario can be attributed to several factors. Firstly, Carla's impatience led her to multitask by giving both patients a clipboard and pen without properly communicating with them. This lack of empathy and closed-mindedness prevented her from considering the potential consequences of her actions. Additionally, Carla's distractions, such as being on the telephone and helping another patient with payments, further contributed to the confusion. Lastly, poor listening skills on both Carla and Judy's part resulted in the nurse preparing the wrong patient.

This means valuing the perspectives and emotions of all parties involved and managing the conflict in a way that promotes understanding and collaboration.
