[Rackham] Microaggressions Session

We hear the term “microaggressions” more frequently now than ever before. Is it because this microaggression culture has just emerged and people are “overly sensitive” while others are all of a sudden engaging in these sorts of acts? Absolutely not.

These daily verbal, behavioral, or environmental slights, whether overt, subtle, or unintentional, have become a huge area of concern. Whether one believes this phenomenon is real, perceived, or a made-up term for invalid experiences, you all will benefit from this session.

You will:

Get introduced to the parent term “microaggressions” and other concepts relevant to this topic

Obtain an understanding of the social and psychological impacts of microaggressions

Engage in activities and dialogue to unveil microaggressions within the workplace

Validate your experiences with microaggressions

Walk away with some techniques to combat everyday slights, as a bystander or as a recipient
