Session 2 Topic: How to Confront Microaggressions 

Do you have to say your name 2-3 times each time you introduce yourself? Do you code switch at work because you know you can’t be your authentic self in certain environments? Have you ever witnessed a colleague who has been made to feel like they don't belong? This workshop will provide a framework for how to thoughtfully confront microaggressions in spaces that weren’t made for us, and how to cultivate a culture of belonging in philanthropy.

This session is the second in a multi-part series on institutional liberation. Over the next few months, we will discuss workplace microaggressions, hierarchies, and how to talk to your teams and to your public audiences about race and class.
