How to Recognize and Respond to Microaggressions

ACS Webinars

Microaggressions are everyday verbal and nonverbal slights, snubs, or insults, which can be either intentional or unintentional. These actions communicate negative or hostile messages that are solely based on the recipient’s perceived marginalized group membership. 

Join Learning & Development Manager Fatima Dainkeh for She+ Geeks Out, during this free interactive broadcast as she discusses what microaggressions are with every day examples, how they manifest, and how we can respond to them.
