Racial Microaggressions: Not All Offenses are Obvious

Posted Jun 20, 2018 03:30 PM
When we communicate with people from a racial or cultural background different from our own, there’s always the chance we might commit a “microaggression” – a verbal or nonverbal cue that conveys disrespect or bias.

Having the tools to discuss the issue is important to fostering a more inclusive workplace. Learn how to have these conversations with Dr. Caprice D. Hollins, co-founder of Cultures Connecting.

At this interactive workshop, you’ll learn what racial microaggressions are, study strategies for interacting with people who’ve experienced a microaggression, and increase your comfort in having these courageous conversations. Prepare to have your eyes opened to things you are doing, which are harming others, that you may be unaware you are doing.
