Communicating in a Diverse World
Examine the impact of the silent bystander. Ouch! Your Silence Hurts will inspire conversations beyond the training room!
Many people say they want to speak up when they see others stereotyped, disrespected, or demeaned. But they stand by silently because of discomfort or the fear of saying the wrong thing.
They may turn away thinking "who am I to get involved, this isn't my business." In fact, as a bystander, you ARE part of the conversation. You are the audience. Your silence allows the disrespectful behavior to continue.
Ouch Your Silence Hurts challenges viewers by asking, "How will you personally respond next time you witness somebody being treated with disrespect? You have a choice: Passive Bystander or Pro-active Ally." In a powerful and compelling way, this 9-minute video motivates bystanders to use their voice to speak up for respect on behalf of someone else.
"When we speak, we are afraid our words will not be heard or welcomed.
But when we are silent, we are still afraid. So it is better to speak."
– Audre Lourde
- Passive Bystander:
A person who witnesses a problem, considers
some kind of positive action, then responds by doing nothing.
The person who witnesses a problem, recognizes
it as such, and takes it upon him or herself to do something about it.

WARNING! OUCH! That Stereotype Hurts & Ouch! Your Silence Hurts will start conversations that are not always comfortable... but are critically important.
"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! will be so helpful because most people want to do something but don’t know what or how."
