Description

A Closer Look at Microaggressions: How Microaggressions Creep into An Organization and Tools to Eradicate Them

From the streets to the workplace, examples of microaggressions are demonstrating that marginalized groups are under siege.

You’re such a great leader... for a woman.

You speak so eloquently... for an immigrant.

Your name is what?!... I’ll just call you Libbie.

How do we maintain our emotional health during this time? How do we safeguard our organizations and communities? How do we strengthen our social change agents to pave our way to positive social impact? Learn how to recognize and respond to offensive language and behaviors in everyday interactions as a recipient and as a witness to microaggressions. In this session you will learn the initial tools to build your resilience and to transform your organization to one where microaggressions don’t stand a chance.

Key Takeaways:

  • Identify the three kinds of microaggression
  • Understand the effects of microaggressions on the individual, organization and society
  • Tools for healing self
  • Tools for organizational transformation

This workshop will be presented by Lupita González, Founder and CEO, The Thrive Advisory.

This workshop is ideal for board members, executive directors, and senior staff who can affect immediate change in their organization.
