 This is a 90 minute workshop recommended for audiences no larger than 30 people.

Don't know how to respond when someone – a peer, a professor, a relative – uses biased language or stereotypes?

Speak Up! Workshop is for anyone who wants to develop the skills to speak up themselves and who want to help their peers find the courage to speak up too.

 

There you are. In the classroom. In the cafeteria. On a trip.

You're speechless.

Someone has said something biased that makes you uncomfortable, or even angry. You want to say something, but you're not sure what to say.

Speak Up! Workshop is for anyone who wants to develop the skills to speak up for themselves and for those who want to help their peers find the courage to speak up, too.

The Speak Up! Workshop addresses:

- Preparing yourself to challenge bias and prejudice
- The way responding to bias might be affected by the power relationship involved, location, and context
- Accessible strategies to speaking up against harmful language.

What exactly is biased language? Slurs, stereotypes, put-downs, assumptions, microaggressions, and other negative labels and language. Can you name any others?
