Recognizing and Overcoming Biases and Microaggressions in the Workplace

Recognizing and overcoming biases and microaggressions in the workplace

Microaggressions and biases are small-scale verbal or physical interactions between people of different races, cultures, beliefs or genders that are—though often unintentionally—hostile or negative. Even if these interactions are not intended to be malicious, they may eventually lead to a sense of exclusion and potential mental health issues for their recipients. 

This discussion features a panel of experts who will provide examples of microaggressions and biases in the workplace and explore ways to recognize and overcome them.
