OUCH! That Stereotype Hurts

Remaining silent in the face of stereotypes or bias allows hurtful attitudes to flourish. Individuals who may want to speak up are not equipped with tools to do so.

The learning objectives of the OUCH! program are to understand the impact of stereotypes and biased statements; recognize why people do not speak up in the face of bias and stereotypes; and provide tools for speaking up against stereotypes.

We use a combination of video and discussion to teach participants the potential impacts of stereotypical comments and behaviors, and we practice six possible responses they may use to become proactive allies.
