Empower yourself to intervene in the moment of a microaggression to build community and trust with students.

Empower yourself to intervene in the moment of a microaggression to build community and trust with students.

Microaggressions are small, subtle moments when communication can be offensive, even when it’s not intended to be. Over time, they build up, create tension, and can have a long-lasting negative impact on the student. It can be difficult to confront these situations, for fear of making the situation worse. However, it is necessary to intervene to build community and trust and to ensure a safe space for your students.

Come to this webcast to learn how to intervene the moment a microaggression impacts your student. You will be introduced to a framework that will guide you through how to:

  1. Ask the right questions to defuse the tension
  2. Respond to the microaggression in a way that creates a safe space for your students
  3. Take action to make the situation right

Who Should Attend

This webcast is designed for faculty, advisors, and even frontline staff who want to learn how to communicate more effectively with others when they experience a microaggression impacting a student. Managers, Directors, and Deans will also benefit, as they will be able to coach others on this framework.

  1. Recognize when and how your students are impacted by microaggressions
  2. Respond to a microaggression involving your student using a reflective ACTION framework
