Yale announces more Ouch! workshops. Excerpts from YaleNews – post:
… titled “OUCH! That Stereotype Hurts,” will be held Friday, Nov. 4. The workshop will help participants understand the impact of stereotypes and biased statements, identify the most common reasons people sit silently in the face of bias and stereotypes, and enhance skills for speaking up against stereotypes.
The workshops help promote feelings of inclusion and solidarity among Yale staff and also promote the eight affinity groups to those who are not aware of the resources they provide.
Participant feedback on the courses has been strong. Every participant in a summer administration of “OUCH! That Stereotype Hurts” gave it a rating of “outstanding.” One participant said she was “looking forward to trying new techniques instead of walking away.” Another said “I’m so happy I took my team — I think we learned a lot and are better equipped to communicate on these topics.”
