$20

Register via Eventbrite

Registration starts on October 10, 2022

A micro-inequity is a behavior, a subtle form of discrimination where a person is singled out, devalued, overlooked, or ignored due to their accent, ethno-racial identity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, socioeconomic class, disability, or membership in a minoritized group. Micro-inequities have negative impacts on workplaces and the wellbeing of individuals and communities. In this workshop, participants will have a good understanding of micro-inequities, the way they impact individuals, and workplaces, how to identify and respond to such behaviours, and how to implement preventative strategies.

Participants will:

  • Increase awareness around micro-inequities.
  • Support skill development in the area of anti-discrimination to mitigate and intervene in instances of micro-inequities.
  • Promote inclusive communication skills and service delivery.
  • Explore new behaviors including reducing discriminatory habits and attitudes.

Workshop date: November 10, 2022 at 1:00pm-4:00pm MST
