The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Education Program supports the area of Strategic Diversity Planning, Training, and Assessment within The Office of Diversity and inclusion. Our goal is to support campus-wide efforts in creating an equitable, socially just institution where all of our students, faculty and staff feel they are valued and belong.
Microaggressions cause harm in every workplace. Yet many of us remain confused about what a microaggression is, how to know if one has happened, and the numerous ways microaggressions impact others. This 90-minute workshop offers a deep dive into microaggressions, microaggessive terminology, and the impacts of microaggressions in our everyday lives. By offering participants the opportunity to expand their knowledge of microaggressions, our workshop aims to encourage the understanding, compassion and confidence necessary to identifying microaggressions and intervening when they are happening.
