Lead the Change!
Responding to Resistance: Confronting Those Who Refuse to Challenge the Status Quo
8 Wednesday | Workshop
4-5:30pm | Union 280
Free and open to UWM students only
Have you ever encouraged someone to reconsider their language or the way they think about something, only to be asked, “Are you calling me a sexist?” or, “Why do you always make this about race?” People want to be perceived as good people, so they may get defensive and tell you to “just get over it” if they feel their views are being challenged. This workshop will break down patterns of resistance, and provide tools for addressing these kinds of conversations in class, work, family, and friend groups.
