Event Details

Academies have openly acknowledged the importance of role models, but very little effort has been directed to address the negative psychological sequelae underrepresented individuals report and the effect that ongoing microaggressions have on their careers. Microaggressions are subtle (often implicit), patterned exchanges, looks, or gestures that devalue race or gender. Because microaggressions can pass as acceptable questions and lines of inquiry between individuals, it is often difficult to identify them. The purpose of this session is to provide you with hands-on micro-resistance training that can empower bystanders to address microaggressions in the workplace.
