“You’re being over sensitive”

“Wow, you’ve got a master’s degree”

“But where are you really from?”

You may or may not have heard of the term “microaggression” but you’ve probably experienced it in your life whether you realise it or not.    A microaggression is a subtle exchange, either verbal or physical that leaves a person feeling uncomfortable, upset or offended, and the person responsible may be unaware that they have caused any offense.

This links directly to dignity at work policies and the Equality Act 2010.

The session will cover:

  • Recognising examples of Microaggressions.
  • Considering the intentions of Microaggressions.
  • Developing an understanding of the discrimination that microaggressions create.
  • Reflecting on own practice and behaviour to minimise microaggressions.

This session compliments our Unconscious Bias workshop where we explore the psychology of the mind and our implicit bias.
