What you will learn:

The uncomfortable truth is, we have all committed a microaggression at some point in our professional (and personal) life, whether unconsciously or consciously.

In this Elective, we'll be breaking down microaggressions into different parts: from learning how the term came to be, to understanding how we need to separate intent from impact when we've said or done something microaggressive.

We will also highlight how we hold people accountable: we will explore calling in, calling out and how to use "I statements" depending on the context of the conversation.

Understanding that microaggressions exist is the first step to being able to spot, challenge and mitigate these exclusionary behaviors. This Elective will support and equip you with the confidence to create a more equitable workplace, and community at large.
