Why is Ouch! That Stereotype Hurts Important?

Staying silent in the face of demeaning comments, stereotypes or bias allows these attitudes and behaviors to thrive. This undermines our ability to create an inclusive workplace where all employees are welcomed, treated with respect and able to do their best work. Yet, most employees and leaders who want to speak up don't know how. So, we say nothing.

Cover of "Ouch! That Stereotype Hurts: Communicating Respectfully in a Diverse World" by Leslie C. Aguilar

by Leslie C. Aguilar

I loved your Ouch! book! Read it cover to cover. What I liked about it was that there were such great concrete examples. And the examples covered a broad continuum – from cool, casual comments to more formal ways to express oneself. The book offers so many valuable and useful perspectives that are hard to find elsewhere. I love the DJ example of “Whoa, I'm not going there.” So many people don't know what to say. I used this book as a unit in my “Interpersonal Communication” course and my students all responded enthusiastically. What a great balance of information and insight without being preachy, Leslie. Thank you!

Having worked in the diversity / inclusion field for over twenty years, I have been privileged to encounter dozens of valuable products designed to increase both awareness and skills. None has surpassed Leslie Aguilar's training video, Ouch! That Stereotype Hurts! and I was thrilled to recently learn that the Ouch! material and message is now available in an eLearning format. I just completed it and found it straight-forward, easy-to-follow, and, as with the video, filled with practical skills. Perhaps most important, there is something about the design that made me want to keep clicking and moving on – maybe it's the flow of the content or the "look" of it, but it seemed to carry me along. Great job, Leslie!

I have one word, FABULOUS!!! This video gives real, gut-wrenching examples of individuals and situations. Most important, it challenges people and gives them the idea that they have the ability to confront stereotypes by showing them how. Ouch! Your Silence Hurts will be so helpful because most people want to do something, but don't know what or how.

You know we love your first Ouch! That Stereotype Hurts video. Your new one – Ouch! Your Silence Hurts – is ten times better. My assistant had tears in her eyes. You nailed it with showing the impact of staying silent.
