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, this term has most likely been heard, but what does it really mean? In this workshop, participants will explore the real impact that microaggressions have on employees, teams, and entire companies.

We will examine personal unconscious biases that commonly show up as microaggressions, sometimes 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 learning how to better hold healthy conversations around this uncomfortable topic.
