Addressing Microaggressions in the Virtual Environment

Date: 
Thursday, August 27, 2020 - 10:00am to 10:45am

Facilitators: Adam Benn and Sacha Ally, Centre for Human Rights, Equity & Diversity – Humber College 

Racial microaggressions are brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, or environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative racial slights and insults toward people of color. Perpetrators of microaggressions are often unaware that they engage in such communications when they interact with racialized people. This workshop provides faculty, staff and administrators with an introduction to racial microaggressions and their numerous manifestations in educational settings. It will explore the outcomes associated with the experience of microaggressions as well as providing recommendations on how to minimize the occurrence of microaggressions and ways to respond when someone has been microaggressive.
