ATD Greater Boston Presents:
Recognizing and Addressing Microaggressions
with Dr. Celeste Malone
Thursday, March 18, 2021
Virtual event - link in registration email
12:30pm – 2:00pm
Microaggressions are brief exchanges that send denigrating messages to individuals of socially marginalized groups. These messages are often unconscious and may be delivered in the form of subtle snubs, dismissive looks, gestures, or tones. Experiencing microaggressions can have a deleterious impact on emotional health, including depressive symptoms, negative affect, and lowered self-esteem. Microaggressions that occur in educational settings or work settings may particularly affect individuals’ self-worth and beliefs about their competency. As such, talent development professionals need to be able to identify microaggressions, understand how microaggressions impact recipients, and engage in corrective action when microaggressions occur. The objectives of this session are to (1) increase individuals’ knowledge of microaggressions and their impact and (2) provide guidance on appropriate ways to respond to microaggressions.
