OUCH! That Stereotype hurts

What if you or someone else is the direct or unintentional target of bias? Are you afraid to speak up? Silence in the face of bias reinforces negative attitudes and behaviors. How can we break the cycle and be diplomatic as the same time? Join us to view the video Ouch! That Stereotype Hurts and participate in a discussion afterward.

Facilitator Michael Gregory is a Qualified Mediator with the Minnesota Supreme Court, and mediates regularly in Ramsey County Housing Court and Ramsey County Conciliation Court, as well as speaking professionally about overcoming conflict. This program will help explore the impact of bias and stereotypes and provide practical advice on how to speak up and help others to overcome bias and stereotypes without guilt or blame.
