When we communicate across cultures, there is always the risk that what we say might offend someone. Oftentimes we don’t even know why, what we said was offensive. How we handle these difficult moments when we have “offended” depends on our level of comfort and skill. While avoiding or becoming defensive can be common practice, effectively engaging in a way that brings us closer together rather than furthers the racial divide is a collective challenge that most of us can relate to.
In this interactive workshop participants will: 1) Learn what racial microaggressions are and why they hurt; 2) Learn strategies for effectively engaging across cultures when a microaggression has been committed; and 3) Increase their comfort in having courageous conversations.
- Develop a common language and understanding of cultural competence
- Deepen insight about self
- Increase awareness of racial stereotypes and their impact on cross cultural relationships
- Understand Racial Microaggressions
- Learn strategies for effectively engaging in courageous conversations
