UPDATE Second Workshop Scheduled:

Due to the overwhelming response in support of the #Oopsism workshop, the session scheduled for Friday, January 30, 2015 has already reached registration capacity.  

A second session has been scheduled for Friday, February 6, 2015. 

  • #Oopsism: Communicating Effectively Across Cultures in the 21st Century
  • Friday, Feb. 6, 11:30 a.m.–2 p.m.
  • Rasmuson Hall, Room 316
Do you recall a moment when words escaped from your mouth that made you wish you had a delete key? In this interactive workshop, participants will focus on how innocent remarks shaped by society’s negative and positive stereotypes are deemed as subtle “isms” (sexism, racism, elitism, ageism, homophobism, etc.) rather than miscommunication or misconception. Participants will learn how to manage and diffuse future “Oops, that’s not what I meant!” moments. Register for the workshop to learn how to turn an oopsism into a positive learning moment for all involved.

Seating is limited; early registration is encouraged.
Lunch will be provided.
