INTRODUCTION
The term diversity has multiple meanings depending on context. In this unit, we are exploring multiple perspectives on
diversity as well as possible challenges to diversity in the context of the social justice movement. For most units, we are also
considering social issues on race and ethnicity. This week’s focus is on a color-blind society and white privilege.

Your Online ePortfolio
Online ePortfolios serve two key purposes: 1) to support learning and reflection, and 2) to be used as a showcase tool.
Your learning journey can be documented, and ePortfolios contribute to lifelong learning and growth through reflection
and sharing. Online ePortfolios can also be shared with employers and peers to present artifacts that demonstrate your
accomplishments at Capella.
Using ePortfolio to Prepare for Your Capstone
Your program may culminate in a capstone course. At that time you may be required to show evidence of your learning
throughout the program by referring to multiple assessments that you have created. You will be telling a story about
your learning throughout the program using artifacts you have collected during many of these courses.
Using ePortfolio to Build Your Career
As you are preparing to tell your story in the professional world, leverage your ePortfolio artifacts to demonstrate the
knowledge and competencies you have gained through your program in professional conversations, performance
reviews, and interviews.
To do that, reflect on the knowledge and skills you have gained from your courses and the elements you have put in
your portfolio, along with how you have already applied these things to your professional life or how you might apply
them in the future.
Next, create your story or talking points to tell your professional story.
Saving Your Documents to ePortfolio
You will need a place to store your documents in an organized fashion so that you can access them at a later date. Do
not rely on the courseroom to store your assignments for you as you will lose access to the courseroom after you have
completed the course. Capella uses a cloud-based portfolio platform to facilitate your organization of the artifacts you
create throughout your program.
