OUCH! That Stereotype Hurts

November 7, 2019

When: November 7, 2019; 1:00 - 4:00pm

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

About: In this training, you will learn to:

  • Understand the impact of stereotypes and biased statements, even when casually said.
  • Identify the most common reasons people sit silent in the face of bias and stereotypes.
  • Enhance skills for speaking up against stereotypes without blame or guilt.
Why is this training important?
Staying silent in the face of demeaning comments, stereotypes or bias allows these attitudes and behaviors to thrive. This undermines our ability to create an inclusive workplace where all employees are welcomed, treated with respect and able to do their best work. Yet, most employees and leaders who want to speak up don’t know how. So, we say nothing.
In a unique and powerful way, viewers will experience the impact of stereotypical comments, explore why people don’t speak up against stereotypes and other biased behaviors, and learn six techniques for speaking up without blame or guilt.
We will apply for three hours of Continuing Education in the cultural competency domain.
