Accelerate(her) presents: Unconscious Biases Fuel Microaggressions

Microaggressions are brief proclamations or activities that convey a negative message about a non-dominant group. In contrast to out-and-out sexism, ableism or other "isms" microaggressions are not intended to be hostile.


Microaggressions in professional environments occur every day and involve individuals from marginalized underrepresented backgrounds. This interactive session will focus on common microaggressions that community members from a wide range of marginalized backgrounds experience.



  • Understand intent vs impact.
  • Identify strategies to disrupt microaggressions caused by others as well as those (inevitably) caused by ourselves.
  • Ability to explain how to respond when committing unintended microaggressions.
