In this workshop, participants are going to explore the real impact that microaggressions have on employees, teams, and entire companies.

Intent versus impact. For people working on creating more equitable workplaces, the term “microaggressions” has most likely been heard but what does it really mean? In this workshop, participants are going to explore the real impact that microaggressions have on employees, teams, and entire companies. This NEW Step Up workshop will examine personal unconscious bias that in return, commonly show up as microaggressions that are often so subtle they go unnoticed by everyone but the people being impacted. Participants will engage in activities to become more skilled to recognize when microaggressions are present while also learning how to better hold healthy conversations around this uncomfortable topic.
