Description of Macroaggressions and the language of Diversity
Instructor: Warren Anderson
“This session will shed some light on the everyday (intentional or unintentional) verbal and non-verbal actions in higher education that create a hostile, derogatory, or negative message individuals based solely on their membership in a marginalized or targeted group. While these instances may appear small and insignificant, they can have a tremendously damaging effect on an individual’s or groups psychological standing. This session will focus on the manifestation and institutional dynamics of macroaggressions, and how we can work to minimize them to the point of eradication.”
This event is intended for Anyone.
