Microaggression In The Workplace

Social identities are the categories that allow us to be who we are while relating and connecting to one another, and they can impact our work experience. Different social identities have different levels of power in society, and these power differences are often reflected and reinforced in the workplace, sometimes through microaggressions. This online training course explains what microaggression is, and the impact it has on marginalized groups.

This course examines the three categories of microaggression, and their level of impact. These include microassaults, microinsults, and microinvalidations. For example, microassaults are derogatory and can be verbal or non-verbal, such as name calling and discriminatory actions.

Viewers are shown the importance of becoming aware of microaggressions, and how words, actions, and environment can hurt others. This course also explains how microaffirmations help to disarm the negative impact. Microaffirmations validate experiences, value people, and validate racial identity.

Use this online course to learn how to combat microaggressions in the workplace and cultivate a safe and welcoming work environment.
