Event description
Develop tools and strategies to navigate microaggressions more effectively in this reflective and interactive workshop.

About this Event

For many of us cross-cultural dialogue can be difficult and scary. Our societal context has solidified a fear of being labeled “racist” or “biased,” which can make it challenging to speak openly and authentically about our lack of knowledge, desire to learn, and fear of the unknown. Often our reactions to microaggressions are fear-based, employing avoidance, accommodation, and denial. Developing the awareness and skills necessary to successfully navigate conflict can help us find a better pathway toward addressing and mitigating the impact of microaggressions.

This workshop will explore the concept of microaggressions and their connection to implicit bias, through reflection, self-analysis, and interactive activities. Participants will leave with a common language and strategies for choosing a more effective response when engaging with clients, employees, service providers, peers and supervisors across industries.

Who should attend this workshop? This is a 200-level course developed for participants who already have an understanding of implicit bias. If you’re new to the concept or unsure of your knowledge level, but would still like to attend this workshop, please learn more about implicit bias here.

Participants will:

  • Learn what microaggressions are, and explore their impact and relationship to implicit bias
  • Practice strategies for effectively recovering after committing a microaggression
  • Gain tools for determining how to respond to microaggressions, as a recipient or bystander
  • Develop personal strategies and confidence for engaging in difficult conversations

This workshop has been approved for the following legal education credits: 2.75 (Ethics) CLE by the Washington State Bar Association
