This innovative training session aims to focus on increasing your understanding of microaggressions. The session will also uncover many common racial microaggressions that may occur in everyday life. Key highlights will be identified from ‘Making Sense of Microaggressions’ written by Susan Cousins and Barry Diamond.


• Susan highlights the substantial impact that these microaggressions can have on people who are confronted with them every day.
• Barry seeks to unmask the prejudice and discrimination that exists behind each of these comments through his bold and provocative designs.
• Together the session will explore the dehumanising and the discriminatory nature of racial microaggressions on people of colour.

The session is for all staff.
