People are becoming increasingly intolerant of inappropriate comments being made in the workplace. However, is there a way we can call people out on these comments without creating arguments?

This session offers effective methods for allowing people to reflect on the problems of their comments without relying on passive-aggressive or “myth-busting” techniques.

We explore practises that seek to understand people’s perspectives, rather than focus on their objectionable conclusions.

We cannot let the place of work be a place of prejudicial or discriminatory language – but we need be constructive in our approach to all everyone to grow.
