MIE Seminar Series: "Micro-Agression Seminar"


Friday, February 19, 2021 - 10:00am


Kirsten Helmer, Ed. D., Center for Teaching and Learning, UMass Amherst


Zoom: (restricted to UMass)


Kirsten Helmer, Ed. D., from the Center for Teaching and Learning, will lead us on an interactive discussion about micro aggressions. Recognizing and developing strategies for addressing micro aggressions is a key part of building a respective, supportive community. Participants will increase their knowledge about what micro aggressions are and the harm they can impart. In small breakouts, we’ll discuss scenarios, examining hidden messages and impact. We’ll then have an opportunity to discuss intervention strategies. We look forward to supporting MIE in your efforts to support a climate that is inclusive and welcoming to all.
