The course encourages delegates to learn about micro-aggressions and what causes them to occur, explore their impact on our interactions with others and increase our awareness of strategies to manage and reduce them.
Definition of Micro-Aggressions
“A small act or remark that makes someone feel insulted or treated badly because of their race, sex, etc., even though the insult, etc. may not have been intended, and that can combine with other similar acts or remarks over time to cause emotional harm.“
Micro-aggressions are an example of subtle, indirect discrimination against marginalised groups. They are small acts of prejudice which expose the speaker’s biases and can have negative repercussions on the lives of the recipients.
Micro-aggressions may not feel significant at the time. They are commonplace interactions that can’t always be readily identified as prejudice. This ambiguity puts the person who is on the receiving end of micro-aggressions in a tricky position as speaking out may be perceived as 'overreacting'.
Feelings of powerlessness can result which can be compounded in the workplace where speaking out may hurt one's reputation.
During this half day course, delegates learn about the impact of micro-aggressions on our interactions with others and increase their awareness to manage and reduce them in the workplace.
This course is available as an In-House Course and we also run it regularly as an Open Course
The course will be interactive with group activities, video clips and opportunities for discussion. The training is delivered by an experienced Facilitator who will create a safe virtual environment for open and honest discussions.

Knowing what, when and how to challenge can be difficult. Within your role you will, at times, be required to challenge others' behaviour because you think it is potentially discriminatory; there are some attitudes, language and behaviours that are unacceptable: e.g. racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, disablist, ageist. This course prepares you to have those courageous conversations.Read More
