Rackham North: Racial Microaggressions
September 25, 2020, 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm EDT
Racial microaggressions can be uniquely harmful to their targets, and yet we often times find ourselves skirting around this subset of microaggressions due to the discomfort of openly discussing race, racism, and white supremacy. In this workshop we hope to foster an intellectually humble environment within which to unpack racial microaggressions, address common barriers to intervening when a racial microaggression is inflicted, and provide tools for successfully intervening in the future.
This workshop is designed for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. For faculty and staff, please contact RackhamEvents@umich.edu to see if we can accommodate your attendance.
