Virtual Session: Addressing Microaggressions & Micro-inequities – November 18
November 18 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm$175
Our research shows that the best inclusive organizations take actions to stop microaggressions and micro-inequities so that all individuals feel they can bring their whole selves to work. GP Strategies® can help you create an environment of psychological safety where all perspectives are valued and supported and team effectiveness is enhanced.
Microaggressions and micro-inequities are products of bias and can also be unconscious. Microaggressions happen when a thought or belief turns into a behavior that negatively impacts another. These subtle comments or actions have been described as “death by a thousand cuts” because, while they seem like minor events, the toll they take on individuals is significant. Microaggressions and micro-inequities can exist between individuals or within systems, but they can be addressed if you have the skills to address them thoughtfully and confidently. In this program, learners develop the ability to address microaggressions and micro-inequities and learn how these experiences affect individuals personally and professionally.
In this session, participants will:
- Define microaggressions and micro-inequities and how they appear in the workplace.
- Understand the impact of microaggressions in relation to workplace performance.
- Introduce the Fact & Impact and 5W tools to understand and address microaggressions.
- Enable learning through scenario practice and action planning.
