Don’t Touch My Hair! Microaggressions in the Workplace

DEI in the UK and Europe: Diversity Reboot Summit

The prefix “micro” might make microaggressions seem like they’re not a big deal; however, they have huge impacts on the psychological safety of their targets, and on the morale and cohesiveness of teams and organisations. In this talk with Executive Coach Dawn Morton-Young, find out what microaggressions are and how they manifest at work, the impact that they could be having within your company, and how to prevent and respond to them.
