Unconsciously and unintentionally, comments from one employee may offend another employee resulting in the commission of a microaggression. Typically, these microaggressions arise from assumptions or stereotypes about an individual or group of people based on their race, ethnicity, sex, sexual orientation and age. This module will improve employee awareness of microaggressions by facilitating opportunities for participants to discover common examples of
everyday microaggressions as well as develop ways to avoid the remarks that tend to offend and create unwelcoming work environments.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define microaggressions

  • Learn the effect of microaggressions on the workplace and relationships
  • Discuss the internal and psychological dimensions of microaggression
