EPIP Colorado is excited to offer this virtual workshop in our Equity 2.0 Series to deepen our learning and skills to advance inclusion and social justice in our professional and personal lives.
Microaggressions - What are they? What is their connection to colonial and patriarchal hierarchies and present-day systems of oppression? How might we respond to them as people who are targeted? As bystanders? What is the differential and cumulative impact of these daily slights on people with intersecting marginalized identities versus those with dominant identities? Led by Jamie Morgan of Morgan & Rushton Consulting, this 3-hour interactive conversation will explore these questions and more. Participants will have the opportunity to dig into relevant concepts and frameworks and explore the historical roots of microaggressions and other forms of interpersonal and systemic oppression. The session will end with small groups unpacking real life case studies in order to brainstorm ideas for interrupting microaggressions and modeling anti-oppressive and justice oriented behaviors.
Space is limited, register here. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the event.
