Abstract"As we head towards a new millennium, valuing and embracing cultural and ethnic diversity while fighting prejudice is the most important issue the EAP field can undertake. In my opinion, it ranks with our early struggles to get alcoholism recognized as a disease and to adopt the EAP Broad Brush approach for helping people. It engenders hope. We can change the American workplace if we are first willing to look at ourselves and change."
DescriptionThe article starts with the story of Jackie Robinson and his challenges as a Black American, not withstanding his achievements in major league baseball. It continues by representing the plight of all minorities in what is still a racist society. Wrich concludes that our society's racial and cultural prejudice is not a thing of the past and that it is present even in the EAP field. Fighting prejudice is the most important issue the EAP field can undertake.
