DEI Training Session: Understanding Microaggressions
Microaggressions are all those little (and not so little) actions and comments that erode an inclusive and welcoming culture. They are demeaning, hurtful, uncomfortable, and dehumanizing. They are the equivalent of saying: ‘you don’t belong here’, ‘you are not welcome’, ‘I don’t understand or respect you’, ‘you are not my equal’.
