Bullying | Discrimination
Address bullying and discrimination at the root by examining how we respond to difference, hierarchy and power. Challenge stereotypes, reveal and acknowledge bias with engaging presenters and compelling content. Give those who feel marginalized a voice and those in the majority a new way to listen to those with less visibility.
COS programs address cyber-bullying, in-person bullying, and all types of discrimination: racial, religious, gender, cultural, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity, and more. Our unmatched collection of presenters, from comedians to school administrators and psychologists, impart proven strategies to defy drama, establish respect and empower bystanders to intervene.
Goals and Learning Outcomes:
- Increase understanding of overt and covert bias, intentional and unintentional discrimination and how to personally work against bias and discrimination.
- Understand what constitutes bullying and discrimination, including physical, psychological, emotional, visual, and technological.
- Challenge your community to engage in mindful analysis of the current level of respect amongst various groups.
- Learn how to respond to and report incidents of bullying and discrimination.
