a social atmosphere that discourages it: saying nothing serves to condone it."

“We would give Ouch! That Stereotype Hurts, 5 out of 5 stars because it handles the topic of diversity and stereotyping so well and yet remains entertaining. It provides real life examples and believable techniques for speaking up and speaking out against stereotypical statements that can lead to discrimination and harassment.”

“I just wanted to let you know that we taught the Ouch! That Stereotype Hurts class yesterday and it was awesome. We were told by many of the 95 leaders present that it was the best diversity training they have ever had.

It scored a 4.9 out of 5 on the evals. Ouch! really is an excellent program and very easy to teach. Thank you!!”

"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."

"Have you ever heard someone say something biased or demeaning and you didn't know whether to speak up? Have you ever said something unintentionally offensive and wished you could take it back? Would you like to know how to present information and lead discussions in ways that include everyone and avoid bias, stereotyping, discounting or potential discrimination? If you've answered “yes” to any of these questions, Ouch! That Stereotype Hurts is the book and video for you."

“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."
