In this Discussion, you explore the influence of personal values on your concept of social responsibility.
To prepare for this Discussion:

• Review “The Golden Rule” from this week’s Resources to identify commonalities across quotes and to determine whether any quotes align with your own values.
• Complete the Cultural Genogram: Dimensions of Culture document in this week’s Resources to discover personal values related to social responsibility.
• Think of the community or communities where you grew up. What issue of concern or need in that community(ies) did you see addressed directly or indirectly?
• Think about the elements in your life that might have influenced your definition of social responsibility.
o Did any of your family members choose careers that served the community in which they lived?
• What convictions do you hold that were formed early in life that now influence the way you view social responsibility?
With these thoughts in mind:
Post by Day 2 a response to the Discussion Spark post. Your response should contain at least two significant paragraphs
