Microaggressions in the Workplace, when good people behave badly
Often good intentions receive more attention than the negative impacts they may produce. In the same way, white superiority created the systems and structures we have in place, it also created the ability for the people who benefit to not see or overlook the effects on those who are marginalized or injured. When confronted with these truths, the reactions of many if not most white Americans falls under the category of white fragility. This webinar highlights the ways white fragility appears in the workplace and how it can be addressed for individual and organizational growth. Learning Outcomes: Gain an understanding of where white fragility comes from. Explore examples of how it appears in equity work and in the workplace. Examine strategies that address white fragility and create buy-in.
