CTL to Host Workshop on Strategies for Responding to Microaggressions

Center for Teaching and Learning

The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) will host a Zoom workshop, “Strategies for Responding to Microaggressions,” on Thursday, Nov. 5 at 11:30 a.m.

Co-facilitators Neena Thota (CICS) and Kirsten Helmer (CTL) will provide an interactive session exploring strategies, approaches and interventions for responding more effectively to microaggressions when they occur. The workshop is intended for those who are already familiar with the concept of microaggressions and builds upon a previous introductory workshop to the topic.

Workshop Goals

  • Share and reflect on strategies that move us from reacting to responding to microaggressions.

  • Learn why it matters to distinguish between intent and impact.

  • Use brief case scenarios to practice ways for taking action when faced with a microaggression.

Registration is required. Upon registering, participants will be emailed a link to the Zoom meeting.
