After studying the assigned reading, in the attached files. Sociology: The Social      Construction of Gender, considering      the concept of “gender as socially constructed,” answer the following      questions and prompts. 

A) How does media create meanings about gender? 

B) Provide examples of how this is manifested in our everyday lives. 

C) Provide a link to a commercial/ad that stereotypes gender. Even though it is natural to find humor in some of these portrayals, in what ways is this problematic. 

Also, consider that sex is a system of classification based on biology and physiology, while gender reflects the cultural meaning that is ascribed to a person’s sex, thus resulting in labels of “masculinity and femininity.” Furthermore, our biology is not distinctively male or female and a significant number of people are born “intersex” with variations in chromosomes or sexual organs. Most biological researchers agree on the estimation that intersex people are about as common as encountering someone with green eyes. It is important to understand that masculinity and femininity are not oppositional, although it seems to be portrayed so in media. In Western society (such as in the U.S. and Western Europe) we typically adhere to certain ideas and values that define masculinity and femininity as we perform the roles. What if the list was different? All of us, in honesty, could reveal that we interchange among the qualities. Take a look at the list and answer the following questions:
  
Masculinity
o strength
o dominance
o aggression
o independence
o empowerment
o active
o rational   thought
o production
o breadwinner
o subject
o outdoors
o technology

Femininity
o weakness
o submission
o compliance/vulnerability
o dependence
o disempowerment
o passive
o emotion
o consumption
o nurturer
o object
o indoors
o nature

Provide answers to the following questions or prompts in your assignment submission. 

D) How is the list being currently challenged?

E) What traits do you have that are typically considered “on the list” of the other sex? 

F) What examples do you see in your daily life of people challenging the historic list? 

G) What about examples in media of characters or people challenging the list? 

H) Finally, do you agree or disagree that gender is socially constructed? Provide evidence that backs your opinion.  

Support your responses with research from the Learning Resources. Use APA in-text citations where necessary and cite any outside sources. Create an APA Reference List or Bibliography at the end of the document.

How was culture developed through the process of shared learning,struggle and growth?

  
Tell a story. Be a story teller. Give a sense for the variables of age and size of the organization, identify the genetic DNA and history per Schein. Make the story compelling. 
Describe how these variables affect the performance of the organization, it’s competitiveness, how it deals with external threats, and adaptability.
Just don’t recite or regurgitate principles or theories (we did that, somewhat, already in the reflection papers), but instead use this case study to synthesize your learnings into a mosaic of understanding and create an organizational culture story.
   
My paper should include the following information:   

1. Assess culture- how was culture developed through the process of “shared learning,” struggle and growth? What do the ‘old timers’ say? What are the Schein artifacts, espoused beliefs and hidden assumptions in your selected organization?
Note: Make this four pages with references, in-text citations and title each questions like you did before on my reflection paper. 

2. How does leadership embrace a learning and change dynamic, what is that and how is that “sold” to oneself, the leader, and subordinates, who may be captivated by groupthink, gaslighting or confirmation bias dynamics?

Note: Make this four pages with references, in-text citations and title each questions like you did before on my reflection paper. 

Describe how you as a leader would use the lens of organizational culture to effect positive organizational change.

  
Using Schein’s tenets, describe the culture of your organization (current or past organization). Describe by age, size and the “cultural DNA” passed down from founders?  How does the macro-culture (ethnic, scientific, political, economic, professional, gender based, etc.) determine/influence organizational behavior and performance? Describe your role as a leader or would be leader in changing culture and organizational performance? Describe how you as a leader would use the lens of organizational culture to effect positive organizational change.
