Ouch! That Stereotype Hurts! Program
In January 2020 Terry Martinez, Vice President, Dean of Students and Chief Diversity Officer at Hamilton, facilitated a discussion for LITS staff using Ouch! That Stereotype Hurts resources from the Diversity & Inclusion Center. We watched a video demonstrating how to respond in moments of diversity-related tension. We then discussed the practical, specific skills that can be immediately applied in the workplace. Response to the session was universally positive.
- “This type of topic can be tough to talk about, but I thought that the presentation was done in a clear way that made the setting very comfortable.”
- “It fostered on-the-spot discussion; felt like a safe space to speak.”
- “The videos presented topics I hadn’t thought of.”
