HDL 670 Diversity Research Project—Multicultural Interview Reflection (75 points)

As a portion of your Diversity Research Project in HDL 670, you must complete a structured interview with an individual from your selected diverse population or cultural group. ( I have chose the Hispanic’s culture as a diverse population)

Stipulations for your interview:
1. Your interview must be structured according to the Project Guidelines.
2. Your interview must be conducted in person or over the telephone/live internet video.
3. Your interview must be conducted during the current semester.

Making contact with the Interviewee:
When making contact with the individual person, clearly introduce yourself and share that you are a graduate student at Murray State University completing a multicultural interview project. Ask them if they would consider answering a few questions regarding diversity and leadership.

Schedule a convenient time for an interview (in person, over the phone/live internet video). Offer to share a list of possible questions with them prior to the interview along with the assignment overview information (an electronic format document will be provided to you). Assure them that their name or identifying information will not be disclosed in your reflection assignment.

Begin the interview with an introduction of the course and this project. Then, allow these questions to guide the interview. Feel free to add others that are especially relevant to your research field.

1. Tell me about yourself, place of employment, job title.
2. What does diversity mean to you? Do you consider yourself to be diverse?
3. How would you describe your ethnicity? Cultural heritage?
