Microaggressions and Implicit Bias Training

Microaggressions are subtle, and often well-meaning remarks, actions, or insults which communicate a negative or hurtful message to a marginalized group of people. In this workshop, participants will uncover the ways in which some of their behaviors and comments intentionally or unintentionally expose their biases and cause harm to others.

You can register through eventbrite:
