Microaggressions in the workplace have a profound impact on people’s well-being, sense of belonging, and overall work performance. People from minoritized communities are often asked to leave a big part of themselves at the door to be accepted at work in order to not seem ‘intimidating’ or ‘too difficult (Leiva, 2018). This one-hour virtual session will be beneficial to helping us all understand what microaggressions are, what’s behind them, how they impact our colleagues, and how to address them to foster a more inclusive work environment.
