Microagressions: Awareness, Impact & Response
More and more people are talking about microaggressions in the work place and in school settings, but what are they? And what are the cumulative impacts of microaggressions on individuals, groups, and organizations? How might we respond, especially as many of them are communicated unintentionally? In this seminar, we will discuss the answers to these questions and engage in dialogue around application to your work in public administration and public policy.
Please join our presenter Cinnamon Adams from the UConn Graduate School at this informative session. RSVP by Thursday, March 22, 2018 at https://uconn.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_bKHm7PrcHtNadzn
