Transparent Teaching for Successful Learning

Time: 12PM

Join the Micro-Resistance against Microaggressions

Date: February 22nd

Time: 9AM

Presenter: Dr. Zareen Zaidi

Zoom link: https://ufl.zoom.us/j/96327157272

Description:

Academies have openly acknowledged the importance of role models, but very little effort has been directed to address the negative psychological sequelae underrepresented individuals report and the effect that ongoing microaggressions have on their careers. Microaggressions are subtle (often implicit), patterned exchanges, looks, or gestures that devalue race or gender. Because microaggressions can pass as acceptable questions and lines of inquiry between individuals, it is often difficult to identify them. The purpose of this session is to provide you with hands-on micro-resistance training that can empower bystanders to address microaggressions in the workplace.
