Are you looking for new effective ways to promote inclusion and the psychological safety of your employees? In this session you will learn about the 21-Day Plan for disarming microaggressions. Get ready to lead your organization’s own 21-day plan with greater understanding about what microaggressions are, where they come from, how to speak up against them and how to take action every day to prevent microaggressions from happening.

Join us in this complimentary Training Industry webinar, sponsored by OpenSesame. Your hosts, Marsha Ross-Jackson, associate dean of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) and professional development at Kent College of Law, and Joel Lesko, the president of SunShower Learning, will share insightful videos and activities from the 21-Day Plan and take your questions via chat. The 21-Day Plan is a microlearning course designed to give knowledge, tips and skills to practice. The plan is based on the work of Dr. Derald Wing Sue, Teachers College, Columbia University, one of the leading experts in the study of microaggressions.

In this interactive session, you will learn:

  • What microaggressions are and their harmful impact on people, the workplace and community.
  • How to identify the hidden messages that microaggressions carry.
  • The skills to speak up, interrupt and disarm microaggressions with micro-interventions in the moment or afterwards.
