Unpacking & Navigating Microaggressions

What are micro-aggressions? How to be aware of them, yet be authentic, and not feel as though you are walking on eggshells? How do you interrupt them in a way that further relationships rather than criminalize the offender? In this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Define micro-aggressions and their impact on target groups

  • Develop strategies to show up authentically while being aware and sensitive to marginalized populations

  • Practice strategies to effectively interrupt micro-aggressions when they happen
