About the workshop:

Are you able to recognize and manage microaggressions that emerge from participants while facilitating? And how have you mitigated a microaggression that you may have made, one that’s directed at you, or another colleague? 

In this workshop, you’ll understand the dynamics of microaggressions, the impact of microaggressions, and learn micro-interventions to address the slights, slips, and slurs before, during, or after facilitation sessions. 

Learning Objectives

In this session, participants will learn:

    To state the definition of a microaggression.
    To explain the types of microaggressions.
    To describe how to recognize a microaggression or microaggressive behaviors.
    To share what microinterventions can be used and strategies to respond if you or others make a misstep.

NOTE: This workshop will be recorded for distribution to all who register (breakout rooms will not be recorded).

This is a 3-hour online workshop. It will take place from 12:00pm to 3pm Eastern Time.
