REI DEI Coffee Hour, Did They Really Say That?!: Tips and Strategies for Confronting Micro-aggressions

You are here

REI DEI Coffee Hour
Wednesday, May 24th from 3:30 – 5:00 p.m. ET

Have you ever heard, “You’re so articulate,” “Where are you from? No, where are you really from,” or “You speak English so well! Did you learn in school?” Depending on the context, these are all micro-aggressions, which are, at a minimum, forms of otherism.

Micro-aggressions cause real harm, especially when experiencing them daily. Earlier this year, attendees of the REI-DEI Coffee Hour, which is held the last Wednesday of every month from 3:30 – 5:00 pm EST, requested a session focused on tools to address micro-aggressions as you all navigate having complicated discussions about race and difference from a DEI lens in the workplace.

So, on May 24, 2023, from 3:30 – 5:00 pm EST/12:30 – 2:00 pm PST, the REI-DEI Coffee Hour: “Did They Really Say That?!: Tips and Strategies on Confronting Micro-Aggressions.”

This interactive session will help us identify micro-aggressions and how to respond. We will have a rich discussion and learn from each other. I’m looking forward to seeing you all! Click here to register!
