Microaggressions: Towards Greater Awareness and Understanding

As cultural beings, we are products of our socialization.

Course Description

Our socialization includes conditioning in how we understand differences and our identities and how those identities are understood and experienced at the individual and structural levels. Using the work of Derald Wing Sue, this session explores the phenomenon of microaggressions in everyday life by increasing awareness of common occurrences; understanding its impact on those who experience them; and exploring strategies on how to mitigate and respond to them. This session includes an exploration of how the pandemic has impacted this area of DEI.

We recommend taking the Making the Unconscious Conscious: Understanding and Mitigating Bias course to supplement the learning objectives from this course.
