Microaggressions are an everyday part of life for racialized and minoritized people that impact health and wellbeing. This presentation will explore the context in which Microaggressions play out and what we can do to address and mitigate the impact on relationships.

Our objectives will be to:

  • Better understanding of Microaggressions and their impact.
  • Awareness of unintentional Microaggressions and why impact matters.
  • Identify how to mitigate the impact of Microaggressions in everyday life.
