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
