Microaggressions: Intent vs. Impact Workshop
Jan 27 @ 9:30 am – 12:00 pm

What are microaggressions? Can they hurt if they weren’t intended in a hurtful way? How do they impact our work environment? What are helpful responses when I see, commit, or have someone use one on me?

Participants in our Racial Equity Workshops develop a common vocabulary, so they can begin to use a “racial equity lens” as they analyze institutional racism.  Led by trained facilitators, the group develops skills necessary to address racism at personal, interpersonal and systemic levels.

Let's Talk at Lunch logoAs we learn to talk THROUGH the issue of racism (instead of around it), we need to share a common language, and deepen our understanding by looking at events and institutions through a racial equity lens. One opportunity for such practice is our “Let’s Talk @ Lunch” program. Participants gather, have a cup of coffee or eat lunch, and YWCA provides a trained facilitator. All are welcome!
