Question and answer
describe ways in which discrimination may deliberately or inadvertently occur in the work setting
Discrimination may occur deliberately if someone is discriminating on purpose, such as being racist or sexist. [ Discrimination happening inadvertently may happen by doing something discriminately on accident, such as giving work to someone who isn't handicapped over someone who is because you may assume they cant, or may have trouble doing instead of asking. ]

Indirect discrimination occurs when policies and practices, which appear neutral or fair because they are applied to everyone, actually disadvantage people and particular groups within society. For example, if a job advertisement states that applicants must be able to drive then this could put a certain people at a disadvantage, such as those with a disability.
Positive discrimination is regarded as the preferential treatment of members of a minority group over a majority group, either by sex, race, age, marital status or sex orientation. So for example if you where to allow a particular less represented group of children over another to perform a task this is classed a positive discrimination.
If a practitioner has particular views concerning race or even religion, these views could be used in the setting unintentionally to have a negative or positive influence in a situation or particular child.
A practitioner may intentionally or intentionally categorise children in a particular way. So for example boys play with blue things and girls play with pink.

explain how practices that support equality and inclusion reduce the likelihood of discrimination?
Weegy: discrimination deliberately or inadvertenly - someone could ignore a colleague - because they are discriminating them purposely- they come from a different area/class/culture/religion etc or they may not actually have anything to do with them [ because they feel they have nothing in common with them - but were not aware that others had noticed they never spoke to the other person, and they (other colleagues) thought it was because they (the existing colleague ) were discriminating against them for whatever reason. Another thing they could do is not share information or blame something on another - deliberately or inadvertently - thinking they didn't need to know or thought it was that person that did something they shouldn't have done. As a setting all practices should have equality and diversity policies/procedures and potential employees should be told that settings put them into practice. Having said that it is now up to a manager to make sure that is followed/practised in the setting, and it would be a pretty poor show if a manager was unconcerned that one of her staff was/may be discriminating against another. The first thing she could do was to observe, organise something such as a social or a work activity where she could 'mix and match' staff so that there is staff cohesion - cooperative staff who respect each other make for a good team working towards the same goal with an atmosphere/ethos for the children. Staff who work with children (or any work place really) should respect and work well together at work - even if they do not socialise away from work. If the manager saw that 'this' person was discriminating against another staff member, she would have to speak to that person, explain that it will not be tolerated - observe and monitor, but if 'that' staff member refused to follow the settings policies/procedures - it is a case for dismissal. ] (More)
