Additional Information1. Scene 1 is about unintentional, yet harmful, expressions people use.2. Scene 2 is about inappropriate joke telling.3. Scene 3 is about two employees speaking in Spanish at the conclusion of a meeting and other employees feel uncomfortable because they feel they are talking about them.4. Scene 4 is about unconscious biases. We have several people in a room of different colors, religious beliefs, age etc. We see them interacting with each other and we also “hear” what they are thinking. For example, the young character in the film “thinks” unconsciously about the older woman and that she was probably here before plumbing was installed and her social security digits are probably 3 digits long.5. Scene 5 is about two males who find out an attractive woman was just promoted so they begin talking (gossiping) that her promotion was due to her looks. We also have another character (Eastern Indian male) that thinks she should have not been promoted because the other person had more education and experience and then falls prey to believing she was promoted simply because of her looks.6. Scene 6 is about a co-worker who is gay and is simply sharing his vacation photos and one of the co-workers feels as though he is flaunting being gay and thinks that his sexuality needs to stay at home and not in the workplace.7. Scene 7 is about an East Coast company that recently acquired a West coast company and make the West Coast employee adhere to their ways because they bought them. The scene is taken place in a conference room where they Skype in the West Coast employee at 9AM Eastern time-- thus the West Coast employee has to get up at a ridiculous hour in order to make the meeting.
