This competency assessment assesses the following Outcomes:
CJ346M2: Explain how cross-cultural communication is an essential element of professionalism in criminal justice fields.
GEL-7.02: Apply ethical reasoning to ethical issues within your field of study.
Create a 6-slide PowerPoint® presentation (excluding the title, introduction, and reference slides) that addresses the following:
Assess cross-cultural communication as an essential element of professionalism in criminal justice fields.
Choose one scenario or case study that demonstrates the effect race, gender, culture, and/or sexual orientation have on interactions with police officers.
You can find scenarios in your readings or online.
Examples include Sandra Bland, Rodney King, Brandon Teena, Breonna Taylor, Michael Brown, and Carlos Ingram-Lopez.
Once you have identified your case, you will summarize it and identify themes from the course material (i.e., gender discrimination, stereotyping, communication styles, hate crimes, community-based policing, etc.).
After identifying themes from the course material, think about the way the individuals within your case study were impacted by the conduct of others. What ethical issues can you identify within your case study? How can those challenges within the criminal justice system be overcome?
The goal of this presentation is to demonstrate your understanding of how a person’s race, culture, gender, and/or sexual orientation can play a role in a situation.
If you are studying a discipline other than criminal justice and wish to tailor your assignment to that discipline, you can contact your instructor for permission.

Viewpoint and purpose should be clearly established and sustained.
Your presentation should be well ordered, logical, and unified as well as original and insightful.
