This four-hour workshop (divided into 2 two-hour segments) will offer an introduction to the concept of whiteness, the significance of whiteness in our everyday lives, and how whiteness shapes our interactions. We will examine how whiteness affects various systems of advantage and what that looks like in our community. Additionally, we will explore how microaggressions are a manifestation of whiteness. We will address what microaggressions are, how we can identify them, and how they impact our daily interactions with one another. Finally, we will examine strategies to confront and avoid committing microaggressions.  

The Whiteness and Microaggressions training is for all faculty and staff. The dates were selected with the idea that more faculty would be available during these times. With the addition of the Equity Advocate role on Search Committees, it is possible that faculty and / or staff members will be in attendance to fulfill requirements to participate in this capacity in the hiring process.
