[DEI Training Series] Racial Microaggressions:  What are They and Why are they Harmful

[DEI Training Series] Racial Microaggressions: What are They and Why are they Harmful

When we engage in conversations across cultures, there is always the risk that what we say might offend someone. Oftentimes we don’t even know why what we said was offensive. But rather than risk offending many people avoid cross cultural dialogue altogether or cling to “politically correct” terminology. The tightrope we walk and the mental labor that ensues is exhausting and often leaves everyone involved feeling unheard or misunderstood. Dr. Caprice Hollins will present on what has commonly become known as microaggressions.

Objectives—Participants will:

  1. Learn about different types of microaggressions
  2. Be able to identify microaggressions when they occur
  3. Understand the impact of microaggressions on our daily lives

Will this Workshop be Recorded? No.

 

Intended Audience: This workshop is appropriate for library staff at any level or position.
