Adults are deeply affected by experiencing microaggressions. Microaggressions are verbal, behavioral or environmental slights or insults directed towards others. Whether said intentionally or unintentionally, microaggressions communicate an underlying hostility or negative attitude based upon a dimension of the person's diversity. This workshop deals with ways to combat microaggressions by creating an agency culture of respect, reverence and dignity for all dimensions of diversity.



  • Define and understand microaggression in the workplace 
  • Discuss the negative impact of microaggression on those targeted
  • Practice how to respond when microaggressions are experienced, overheard or used
