Have you ever witnessed someone make a biased or stereotypical statement and didn’t know what to do? Well, you are not alone.
Knowing what to say and how to say it is tricky. We ask ourselves: What if the person gets angry? What if they accuse me of being too sensitive? What if I hurt their feelings?
In order to overcome this hesitation, we need two things: First, an understanding of how harmful it is to remain silent and, second, specific instruction on how to go about speaking up.
Fortunately, those two things are exactly what Ouch! That Stereotype Hurts provides.
Staying silent in the face of demeaning comments allows these behaviors – and the attitudes behind them – to thrive. If we can get even one person to break the silence, it will inspire others to do the same and, in turn, move your workplace just one step closer to equity and inclusion.
