Learn about Micro-aggressions at Oct. 17 Workshop

The workshop, facilitated by Psychology instructor Felicia Swafford. takes place Thursday, Oct. 17, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the Conference Center (Room 344) on Clifton Campus.

MIcro-aggressions are verbal, behavioral, or situational messages that unintentionally or intentionally result in another person feeling minimized or insulted, often resulting in a less inclusive workplace or classroom.

Workshop participants will learn:

  • how to recognize ways their own experiences with micro-aggressions have shaped their feelings of self-worth
  • how to respond to micro-aggressions in productive and empowering ways
