Recognizing and Responding to Microaggressions

Printer-friendly version

Speaker:NJ Division on Civil Rights

Microaggressions are subtle acts of exclusion that many people routinely experience and struggle to address. This interactive, virtual training will explore the ways that microaggressions manifest in our daily lives and impact our relationships with others. Through examples and discussion, participants will deepen their understanding of microaggressions and investigate effective strategies for responding to microaggressions that they experience and commit. Participants will also learn about the NJ Law Against Discrimination and how microaggressions can contribute to hostile environment harassment and disparate treatment. This deeper dive into the topic of microaggressions requires a basic understanding of implicit bias.
