Abstract: This project is an exploration into what students at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke know about the ways that gender affects work and workplace policies. Students were interviewed individually and asked to answer questions about scenarios that dealt with interviews, discriminantion, sexual harassment, rights in the workplace, and the glass ceiling. The results showed no distict patterns occurring in a certain age, gender, major, place of origin, or whether the person had job experience. No participant was able to answer every question correctly and without guessing. This shows a lack of knowledge in policies that could soon affect them as they enter the work world. Educational seminars and classes in human resource practices is suggested as a way to prepare these students for situations that could occur.
