‘Where are you REALLY from?’: moving from micro-aggression to inclusion (sold out)
Micro-aggression – the unintended disparagement of others by someone who means no offense – can cause great emotional harm and be particularly threatening to diverse and inclusive learning environments. Usually a result of conscious and unconscious biases, micro-aggressive communication in cross-cultural circumstances takes the form of frequent use of stereotypes, the reproduction of prejudices and a lack of awareness of the uniqueness in others. In this workshop, you will learn how to recognise micro-aggression in verbal and non-verbal communication, identify your own biases, practice culturally competent communication skills and practice culturally sensitive action so that you can help foster more inclusive learning environments.
