Part I: Subtle Acts of Exclusion: How to Understand, Identify, & Stop Microaggressions Book Study

Wednesday, September 15, 2021 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Although unintentional, we have all committed subtle acts of exclusion (SAE, a.k.a. microaggressions) which can alienate our colleagues, students, and friends. These actions and phrases often go unaddressed and are harmful. Join us in learning how to spot and address stereotypes, objectification, and other forms of microaggressions that separate instead of uniting.

*These sessions are open to all faculty and staff. In order to receive a complimentary copy of the book via intercampus mail, registrants must commit to attending both sessions in order to fully participate.

Part One: Chapters 1-4 Understanding the definition of SAEs and learning how to recognize “the initiator”, “the subject”, and “the observer”. Ways of addressing these individuals will also be discussed. Wednesday, Sept 15, 2021; 3:00-4:00pm

Part Two: Chapters 5 - 10 A discussion of examples of SAEs that were directed at specific marginalized identities followed by ways in which we can all be more intentionally inclusive. Wednesday, Sept 29, 2021 3:00-4:00pm
