Minimizing Microaggressions

Get Started

Microaggressions are unintentional slights, invalidations, or other offensive behavior that cause exclusion, and worse, a hostile environment, especially for people with traditionally marginalized identities. This session offers insight into some of the language, nonverbal, and verbal behavior we engage in, or witness, that might have negative unintended consequences. Through interactive skill-building group work, we consider how to effectively challenge microaggressions when they arise and become agents of change as we strive to create more culturally inclusive spaces. Delivery: scheduled live digital classroom or pre-recorded/self-paced. Optional added Virtual Reality Simulation practice (see below).
