Part one will be Monday, November 29th 5pm to 7pm. This training takes place in two – 2 hour sessions.
In the first session you will learn about (micro) aggressions and how they impact people. Strategies will be shared about how to engage and interrupt (micro) aggressions and macro aggressions. There will be real scenarios presented between staff:staff, student:student, staff:student and student:staff.
The sessions will be supported through whole group learning and breakout spaces to practice new skills. Participants will be put in breakout rooms with others of similar power and positionality. For example, BIPOC students will work together and white female administrators will work together.
The second session will be Monday, December 13th 5pm to 7pm. The second session will provide an opportunity for participants to share what worked and what was challenging. There will be time to practice in small groups and address concerns together. You must attend part one to attend part two.
