While some may believe the road to equity and inclusion is “paved with good intentions,” language that is left unchecked can have a destructive impact. Microaggressions are more than just words; they are subtle acts of exclusion. Not only do we need to identify what they are, we need to unpack why they cause harm, and how they differ from other acts of discrimination. This interactive workshop will allow participants to critically reflect on their intentions vs impact with regard to language and learn strategies to intervene when they observe microaggressions occur.
