[Rackham] Racial Microaggressions

Session Is Over
Livestream Available (Visible After Registration)

Racial microaggressions can be uniquely harmful to their targets, and yet we often times find ourselves skirting around this subset of microaggressions due to discomfort in openly discussing race, racism, and white supremacy. In this workshop we hope to foster an intellectually humble environment within which to unpack racial microaggressions, address common barriers to intervening when a racial microaggressions is inflicted, and provide tools for successfully intervening in the future.

Learning objectives:

  • Identify elements of systemic racism and understand it’s compounding nature, and connect how systemic racism creates a breeding ground for racial microagressions Identify racial microagressions and intervene to disrupt their impact
  • Practice emotional self-awareness by identifying emotional barriers to intervening to disrupt a racial microagression
