Description: This training focuses on increasing participants' awareness of the occurrence and impact of racial microaggressions in/on daily life for people of color. Racial microaggressions are verbal, behavioral, or structural indignities, either intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative messages or sentiment towards people of color. This training is invaluable in either beginning or continuing to understand how good intentions do not negate the potential negative impact of our actions or inactions.

  2. Identify examples of racial microaggressions.
  3. Analyze the impact of racial microaggressions on people of color.
