It is easy to spot overt racism and discrimination, as seen by the country's most recent racial tensions. However, some prejudices are quieter, more subtle, and more challenging to identify and address. At times, we might think, "Am I overreacting?" "Did she/he say what I think she/he said?" or "Should I let that comment slide, or address it?"

Described as "death by a thousand cuts," microaggressions do not just hurt our feelings; they can have long-lasting impacts that leave an impression on us for a lifetime. Regardless of your industry or what role you play, unmasking microaggressions can help us foster mutual respect and a better understanding of the social identities we all possess.

Please join us as we delve into this hour-long session on this crucial topic that will stimulate dialogue and self-reflection to cultivate a more harmonious society.
