This week, you will reflect on the role of diversity in research and practice by developing a 3 to 5-page newsletter with two key articles:
One article will be focused on describing the importance of diversity in the workplace and the challenges inherent to a diverse workplace relative to the forensic psychology field. This is a fairly wide-open topic and can relate to diverse offenders, diversity differences between treatment providers and offenders, treatment efficacy related to diversity, or any other topic you feel can adequately describe the importance and challenges related to diversity in forensic psychology.
A second article will be focused on why diversity is important in forensic research and whether diversity is considered in research on eyewitness testimony. Here you should consider what elements you have found to be relevant in eyewitness testimony related to diversity. It may be that there is limited research on your group, and you need to compare and contrast with other groups, or you may find that research on your group does not encompass the needed diverse groups. Again, there are many directions you can take this article, but be sure you are addressing why diversity is important in forensic research and, in particular, with eyewitness testimony.
This newsletter should utilize scholarly resources to back up your ideas. It is not an opinion piece, but rather a newsletter giving information utilizing an academic tone and scholarly support.
Length: 3 to 5-page newsletter which includes 2 articles, page length does not include a title page or reference pages
References: Include a minimum of 3-5 scholarly resources.
