Kim Clark, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Communications Consultant, has spent most of her career in work environments dominated by straight males, and dealing with microagressions was one of her constant struggles. At first, she didn't realize how much these aggressions had impacted her personally and professionally, affecting her access to projects and promotions, but eventually, she learned how to overcome them. As a communications consultant, she’s learned how important it is to deal with microaggressions head-on, because, no matter how inclusive a company may desire to be, microaggressions will undermine belonging.

In this chat, I want you to :

  • Unlearn limiting thoughts around microaggressions (knowing you are not alone, you are not overly sensitive, you didn't do anything to deserve any microaggression)
  • Identify microaggressions and how they impact us
  • Learn effective ways to speak up when a microaggression is said
