BaCE: Recognizing and Responding to Microaggressions

Tuesday, April 16, 2019 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Microaggressions are the everyday verbal, nonverbal and environmental slights, snubs or insults, whether intentional or unintentional, which communicate hostile, derogatory or negative messages to target persons based solely upon their status as a member of a systemically non-dominant group. This workshop will introduce the concept of microaggressions and further individual understanding by engaging in activities to recognize microaggressions. Participants will be exposed to the lived experience of microaggressions through the narratives of students and colleagues. Participants will dialogue and create strategies for responding to microaggressions throughout the campus community and their everyday lives.

Prerequisite: IDI pre-assessment required.
Facilitators: Shameem Rakha and Obie Ford III
Maximum Number of Participants: 30
This is a Group 2 workshop.
