Microaggressions training

In this course developed for College of Engineering staff and faculty, you will learn to recognize microaggressions, understand their impact and how to respond when encountered.

One way to build a culture where everybody feels welcome is to avoid committing microaggressions in our communications and interactions with one another. Microaggressions training supports the College’s staff and faculty in working together toward the strategic goal pillar #3.

The training is designed to meet your learning needs, whether that means a facilitated group workshop for your team or a self-paced online course for yourself. Reach out to us at to discuss your options.

“I really enjoyed the course being interactive throughout. Also providing the references so I can go back and learn more is fantastic. The learning doesn’t stop after this course and I have resources to continue!”

“The course as a whole was great! Good mix of clear, easy to digest, helpful information & knowledge checks/reflection. I appreciated that it included the section discussing impact to perpetrators as most microaggressions trainings I’ve participated in do not cover that aspect. I found the LMS (Learning Management System) platform very user friendly and effective.”

“I personally really like it because it addressed every perspective (perpetrator, bystander, victim) and how it impacts everyone. As someone who has been in this work for years I learned new things from this presentation.”

— Kaytie Ohashi, Academic Counselor
