Through this scenario, you will:
- Reflect on your personal reaction to microaggressions
- Identify common microinsults and microinvalidations and learn about how they impact the lives of marginalised people
- Learn strategies for having constructive conversations about racism
- Practise challenging others to reflect on their microaggressions safely and effectively.
"I don’t even see colour”
Overt racism is easy to spot. But microaggressions - subtle everyday slights, snubs and insults - are often invisible to anyone who hasn't been on the receiving end themselves.
This simulation shines a spotlight on some of the microaggressions that marginalised and under-represented people experience every day and empowers learners with strategies for responding to microaggressions when they see them.
This simulation has been co-developed in collaboration with subject matter experts from George Brown College.
