Ouch! That Stereotype Hurts: Communicating Respectfully in a Diverse World

December 7, 2018

When: December 7, 1:00 - 4:15pm

Location: Matthew B. Schoonover Educational Center at Prevention Action Alliance; 6171 Huntley Road, Suite G; Columbus, OH 43229

About: Join us for this interactive workshop that focuses on the importance of cultural competence and is based on the book by the same name written by Leslie C. Aguilar. It will demonstrate how just one person speaking up can inspire others to do the same.

Participants in this workshop will learn six specific techniques on how to deal with situations that can be awkward and damaging around the use of stereotypical and biased communication and how to become more culturally competent. Applicable to both the workplace and one's personal life, this workshop offers participants the understanding and skills needed to deal with our increasingly diverse world by promoting communication skills that encourage inclusion and respect.

Presented by Mary Makley Wolff, M.S., Director, Coalition for a Drug-Free Clermont County.

We have applied for 3 hours of cultural competency hours for this training. 

Sponsor: Prevention Action Alliance
