I'm on a course at college and where doing about the workplace at the moment and this is a question I have to answer and I don't understand it and I am not at college to ask the tutor.
I understand what stereotyping is and about equality but can't quite answer this. Any help will be appreciated.
Stereotyping may prevent perfectly hardworking people from getting ahead. Also, people who are aware of a negative stereotype about them will often experience anxiety, which in turn impairs their performance, adversely affecting the company as a whole. When you answer this question, think about things like age, gender, race, and ethnicity.
Stereotypes like "Mexicans are lazy" might effect a mexican getting hired because no one wants to hire a lazy person. So a general stereotype about a race like that could stop that race of people from getting hired or being considered for the job. I'm sorry if that doesn't really help you. I tried haha.
