How to Address Microaggressions and Known Offensive Language in Your Department/Municipality

As more conversations around excessive force, inequities, and various forms of negative bias are happening in communities around the world, the discussions are taking place with more directness and intentionality and sometimes using micro-aggressions and offensive language. In the work environment (virtual or in-person) the use of microaggressions can reduce morale and reduce productivity in the workplace.

In this training session, we will define what are microaggressions, why they can be offensive, learn ways to recognize them and learn ways to rephrase words and expressions of thought that are not as offensive.
