Understanding Micro-Aggression


Microaggressions are the everyday verbal, nonverbal, and environmental slights, snubs, or insults, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative messages to target persons based solely upon their marginalized group membership.  The first step in addressing microaggressions is to recognize when a microaggression has occurred and what message it may be sending.

Participants will:

  • How  to identify micro-aggression situations

  • Develop skills to effectively  respond to micro-aggressions professional settings

  • Appropriate ways to respond to micro-aggressions
