The People Company LLC
In most workplaces, daily exchanges between team members encompass a wide variety of personalities with varying degrees of conversation. What happens when those conversations drift into stereotyping - specifically, the subtle type? Unconsciously and unintentionally, comments from one employee may offend another employee, resulting in the commission of a microaggression. This session will improve employee awareness by facilitating opportunities for participants to discover common examples of everyday microaggressions as well as develop ways to avoid the remarks that tend to offend and create unwelcoming work environments.
