Microaggession is defined as: a subtle but offensive comment or action directed at a minority or other non-dominant group that is often unintentional or unconsciously reinforces a stereotype. Microaggressions occur everyday in the spaces we occupy--from the classroom to our places of employment. How do we identify and respond to them? Where do they come from? This interactive session will help students identify their own unconscious (or implicit) bias and provide strategies for coping with microaggressions when they occur. Students need to take an Implicit Association Test (IAT) before the session and bring their results with them: https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/takeatest.html.

This program is open to all law students and hosted by the Wayne Law Student Affairs Office, WSU Office of Diversity and Inclusion, Office of Multicultural Student Engagement (OMSE) and WSU Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS).  

Lunch will be provided.
