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. Our program offers a variety of educational experiences to enrich DEI efforts across the university and build the intradepartmental skills necessary for faculty and staff to achieve their unit/college’s DEI goals.
Microaggressions cause harm in every workplace. Yet many of us remain confused about what a microaggression actually is, what to do when we experience one, and what to do if someone tells us we have enacted one. This workshop dives deep into the definition of microaggressions, equips participants with a firm understanding of what constitutes as a microaggression, and offers tools to plan out interventions and/or hold ourselves accountability when faced with microaggressions.
