In your Final Presentation for the Course Project, you will contextualize your experience as you work to acquire a multicultural perspective on social change through the social problem you selected to investigate. Your analysis should reflect the insight you have gained about social reform and social issues that plague societies in which oppression, prejudice, and intolerance still affect the quality of life of their citizens.
Write a 3- to 5-page analysis of social change with a multicultural perspective. Describe the types of activities or strategies you can apply to bring awareness and possible resolution to the social issue you selected. Alternatively, you may create a presentation in PowerPoint if you wish to use a more graphic approach to illustrate your issue.
In your analysis, you should do the following:
• Summarize the social issue you selected.
• Provide your analysis of the core problem.
• Describe possible solutions for social change.
• Include activities/strategies and any counter-perspectives or problems that could impact your proposed social change.
• Include concrete steps (both personal and collective) to be taken under a multicultural perspective to create social change.
• Adhere to proper formatting with sufficient research to support and complement your writing.
Support your assertions by making at least two documented references to your course readings, following the examples of documentation in “Common Reference List Examples” (see the Resources for this week). Please use proper APA formatting to cite each of your sources.

However, individual or distinctive a person is, he or she cannot survive without other human beings. This dependency on others is both the best trait of human beings but also one of the main reasons why conformity plays such a big role in everyday life. If humans were not as dependent on others, conformity to social norms would not be an issue. It is important to distinguish two separate types of conformity, one that is beneficial to society and the other which is damaging to both society and individuals (Gil-White, 2005; Tetlock et al., 1989; Janis, 1982; Song et al., 2012).
