Understanding Microaggressions: What You Need to Know to Support a Respectful Workplace
Oct 26, 2023
14:15 - 15:00 PM PDT

You likely know someone who suffers long-term, chronic pain from repetitive motion. Tendinitis or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome from long hours at a keyboard or screwing in drywall. Persistent back pain from months and years offloading trucks or assembling widgets. But with mental health claims now eclipsing Musculo-skeletal injuries in many industries, employers are having to learn quickly to recognize and mitigate psychological risk factors at work.

Microaggressions are daily slights and put-downs—sometimes unintended reflections of bias related to race, ethnicity gender, sexual orientation, disability, or socioeconomic status. And day to day in your business, microaggressions can have the same cumulative effect on workers’ mental health as those more familiar repetitive motion injuries.

In this session:

  • Learn to recognize microaggressions where they are happening in your workplace.
  • Get new insights into the impact they have on marginalized employees, and on your organizational culture.
  • And take away practical strategies to educate, intervene, and foster amore inclusive work environment.
