EmPower Hour: Micro-Aggressions 101
Micro-aggressions are common in the workplace, especially for people of color, women, and LGBTQ+ people. They often decrease productivity and can create a toxic workplace environment. During this hour, we will watch a TED Talk on micro-aggressions together and then participants will unpack these assaults on marginalized communities, identify ways to avoid being the offender and share tips on being an effective and active bystander.
