What are Microaggressions and Implicit Biases?

How do we address our own implicit biases and those of others before these lead to systematic and structural racism and discrimination?

In this interactive workshop, we will examine research on microaggressions and our natural tendency to have implicit biases and how they influence our institutions, staff, and students. We’ll also explore strategies to counteract them.

Learning outcomes:

  • Understand that bias is a natural human tendency that, left unchecked, can undermine equity in our school and university. 
  • Recognize microagressions and our own and others’ implicit biases (including those around race and culture) as violent and damaging. 
  • Know strategies to address them.

Register for the Event

“How to Be an Antiracist” Racial Justice Series is in continuation with a catalog of racial equity events offered by Steinhardt’s Office of Equity, Belonging, and Community Action. Its goal is to create community dialogue and opportunities for moral growth by bringing together various voices and critical perspectives on antiracism to reenergize and reshape our School’s evolving commitment to racial justice. In doing so, we hope to liberate new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. Instead of working with the policies and system we have in place, the series will ask us to think about how an antiracist society and school might look, and how we can play an active role in building it. This series of workshops promises to be an essential experience for anyone who wants to go beyond an awareness of racism to the next step of contributing to the formation of a truly just and equitable society.
