CREATING A MORE INCLUSIVE CLIMATE THROUGH MICRORESISTANCE
Whether an observer of, the target of, or the unintentional perpetrator of microaggressions, we often don’t know how to respond to them in the moment. This session will offer participants an understanding of microaggressions and their impacts on students and colleagues, along with microresistance strategies to use when they occur. The goal of the workshop is for participants to feel more comfortable responding to microaggressions with microresistance. Employing microresistance to counter microaggressions can not only contribute to individual well-being, but also serve as one part of a systemic approach to transforming oppression on our campuses.
Facilitated by Dr. Cynthia Ganote, Assistant Professor in Sociology
