As Daniel Goleman writes, “saying nothing serves to condone it (bias).” Biased, stereotypical, or otherwise demeaning communication undermines morale, teamwork, and productivity. It can drive customers away, cause a public relations fiasco and worst of all, create a climate of distrust and pain in your organization. So, what can you do to speak up against stereotypes? Just say … Ouch!

I just completed the training and I wanted to tell you how good I thought it was. First, I thought it was very inclusive! I think it did a great job addressing all types of stereotypes. I think I can share that I believe people are sometimes unresponsive to this type of training because they don’t feel they are or they don’t want to be perceived as part of the problem.
The video made it clear that there are stereotypes about all different kinds of people and that everyone one can be on the receiving end of a lack of inclusion. I think this will make it easier for everyone to relate to and draw the parallels to other stereotypes. I thought the techniques offered in the training were great, too.
I thought the format of the video was fantastic. It was engaging, and it seemed very genuine. The acting was good, and I love how the post-test was disguised as “learning.” Thanks so much for making sure that everyone at Nemours gets this training.

“To me, one of the most impressive things about the Ouch! program is its simplicity. It deals with what is often a highly charged and emotional subject in clear, straightforward language that all of us can understand and makes the case that we all greatly benefit, both individuals and organizations, from a bias-free workplace. “Biases and stereotypes are among the biggest barriers to creating an inclusive workplace. The “Ouch! That Stereotype Hurts” program is one of the most effective tools we’ve seen that organizations can use against them.”
Mike Streeter, Workforce Diversity Network
“The Ouch Video is a great complement to our harassment training since many potential harassment situations involve those “not so obvious” stereotypical comments. As participants watched the video, we could see heads nodding in agreement that stereotypes still exist. Since rolling out the training, employees in all of our facilities across the U.S. are saying “ouch” to speak up against stereotypes.”

“Ouch! That Stereotype Hurts is a very easy-to-use training program that makes a strong point. The examples are realistic, and the techniques are easy to implement. Remember, most people don’t speak up against bias because they don’t know how. This program teaches the how. With practice, it gives us confidence to handle those types of situations where before we might not have because we didn’t know what to do or say. I recommend Ouch! That Stereotype Hurt for any organization that wants to increase employee awareness of remarks that might seem OK on the surface but are really based on bias or stereotypes.”

“Finally, a video that shows the viewer exactly how to respond in moments of diversity-related tension! No blame, no guilt, no conflict – just practical, specific skills that can be immediately applied in the workplace. OUCH! is a must-have and a must-see for anyone seeking to create and sustain a respectful workplace.”
