Oct 29 2024

2:30 PM - 3:15 PM MT

Edu Session Room 1

This presentation aims to educate administrative professionals about microaggressions and their effects in the workplace, and equip participants with practical solutions to address and prevent them.


  • Terminology: We will define and explain microaggressions, providing examples to ensure a clear understanding. We will also explore different types of microaggressions, such as micro assaults, micro insults, and micro invalidations, and their impact on individuals. In addition, the presentation will provide an overview of the vast impact microaggressions have on many people, usually underrepresented groups.
  • Roles: Participants will learn that individuals’ roles can change rapidly and unpredictably. This can occur due to various factors, such as new information being presented, unexpected challenges arising, or even a shift in the group’s dynamics. 
  • Impact: Participants will get clarity on how microaggressions are often unintentional, but their impact is real and can perpetuate harmful stereotypes and biases. The presentation will highlight the adverse effects of microaggressions on individuals, teams, and the overall organizational culture. We will discuss potential consequences such as decreased productivity, low morale, and high turnover rates caused by unaddressed microaggressions.
  • Solutions: Lastly, the presentation will provide practical solutions and strategies for addressing and preventing microaggressions in the workplace. The audience will know the importance of fostering open communication, empathy, and cultural sensitivity.
  • Engagement: During the presentation, participants will engage in an interactive activity with a partner. The entire presentation will last 45 minutes and aim to engage the audience through visually appealing slides and clear, concise information.
