What does ‘microaggressions’ mean? Many people are unfamiliar with the term but most are aware of what it is, and what it feels like to be on the receiving end: the small and rather subtle well-intentioned behaviors and statements made by others which reflect an implicit negative bias or perception of a certain individual or group because of their identity.

Derald Wing Sue, Professor of Psychology and Education, Teachers College, Columbia University

This session characterizes situations where microaggressions may occur, and the impact of such experiences on both parties. The workshop will provide tools that may be employed when facing a microaggression. This session should also help participants recognize their own biases and explore how to reduce the likelihood of being a deliverer of microaggressions.
