CLICK HERE TO REGISTER Colors of Success: "To Speak or How to Speak, That is the Question" - Addressing Microaggressions  This is a webinar!
Colors of Success (CoS), is an introductory diversity, equity, and inclusion series which informs, inspires, and encourages organizations to improve workplace equity in the Greater Rochester area and beyond.
Microaggressions and micro-inequities are products of bias and can also be unconscious. Microaggressions happen when a thought or belief turns into a behavior that negatively impacts another. These subtle comments or actions have been described as “death by a thousand cuts” because, while they seem like minor events, the toll they take on individuals is significant. Microaggressions and micro-inequities can exist between individuals or within systems, but they can be addressed if you have the skills to address them thoughtfully and confidently. In this session, learners will:
-Define microaggressions and micro-inequities and how they appear in the workplace-Understand the impact of microaggressions in relation to workplace performance-Develop the ability to address microaggressions and micro-inequities
