Inclusion and Diversity Series: Recognizing and Addressing Microaggressions
- Organizer: OIDI
- Venue: Virtual
What does the term ‘microaggressions’ mean, and how do we recognize when we have committed or been subject to one? These often subtle and well-intentioned actions or statements reflect an implicit bias, perceptions or stereotypes based on identity. This session offers insight into circumstances in which microaggressions may occur, and the impact of such experiences. The session will provide tools to be used to interrupt a microaggression as it occurs, or follow up to repair a relationship. Participants will gain familiarity with their own biases and explore how to avoid delivering microaggressions in their work with others.
