Hidden Messages: What every faculty member should know about microaggressions and their macro impact

Microaggressions (instances of indirect, subtle, or unintentional discrimination) occur all around us, including in the classroom, clinic, and day-to-day activities with colleagues. You’ve probably experienced them yourself or been an unknowing perpetrator.
 
While these minor slights can seem inconsequential in the moment, they can become a cumulative burden over time, impacting the recipient’s personal well-being and professional success — and ultimately, the university culture as a whole.
 
What tools are available to us so that we might recognize these offensive implications in our own communications and serve as allies to our colleagues and students when we witness microaggressions by others?
 
Join us on Aug. 16 where visiting faculty member Dr. Cynthia Ganote will lead an interactive workshop defining and discussing key concepts associated with microaggressions. Microresistance strategies will be highlighted and activities used to demonstrate how to apply these techniques in academic environments.
