Microaggressions in the Workplace
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Microaggressions are brief, often confusing and upsetting, daily indignities (in language, behavior, or spaces) that further marginalize people due to their identities. While originally used as a term to name negative racial slights or insults, in this training we are extending the definition to include slights or insults that include other dimensions of difference such as race, ability, gender, sexuality, language, religion, age, etc.  Often, these comments or behaviors are not intended to hurt, but in the workplace the result is exclusion. Intentional or not, there is a cumulative impact of experiencing microaggressions. As progressive as many workplaces are, we might be surprised that our everyday interactions are filled with microaggressions that undermine our self-worth and productivity. This workshop defines microaggressions, and identifies how microaggressions impact the UMD community. Participants will leave the workshop with skills to identify and begin to think about how to address microaggressions in the workplace.

Location: TBD

Presented by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. For more information contact  diversity.umd.edu
