Workshop tackles microaggressions in the workplace

Microaggressions in the Workplace: How to Be Culturally Supportive
May 12th, 2022  3:30 - 5:00pm

Microaggressions can affect the mental health and well-being of BIPOC coworkers. It is important to be culturally empathetic and supportive to coworkers of color. BIPOC coworkers who experience on-going microaggressions and overt racism in the workplace often cope with drugs and/or alcohol due to not having emotional support or a safe space.

The Social Innovation Journal will sponsor a discussion on these issues led by Holly Sawyer of Lincoln University on Thursday, May 12th from 3:30-5pm.


  • Participants will be able to identify 3 types of microaggressions, microaggression type language and ways to address microaggressions in today’s cultural environment to ensure diversity and inclusion.
  • Participants will learn best practices on ways to eliminate microaggressions and how to be culturally supportive.
  • Participants will be able to define microaggressions and understand its psychological impact when they show up in the workplace.
