How to address Microaggressions
Curious how to create an environment where all employees feel safe, supported, and included? Create a culture where individuals can bring their full authentic selves to work?
The ‘Power of Language’ program series, provides participants a deeper understanding and awareness of their own dimensions of diversity, how to recognize micro-messages, and teaches a model to interrupt microaggressions. It is the ideal approach to ignite your organization’s D.E.I.B. initiatives.
The program educates and empowers participants to recognize the impact of language, encourage a commitment to allyship, enhance understanding of intersectionality, and create a strong culture of inclusivity, equity, and belonging. Power of Language consists of three customized workshops, facilitated over a four-to-eight-week period.
- Session #1: Understanding Dimensions of Diversity
- Session #2: Identifying Microaggressions
- Session #3: Interrupting Microaggressions
Navigating Awareness-Heritage Months
Looking for resources to help you recognize and celebrate The Jewish High Holidays and Hispanic Heritage Month?
September is a busy month, and we have two Resource Guides for you to access and share with your teammates, colleagues, friends, and family.
Jewish High Holidays: Sept 8 and 16th
The High Holidays (download PDF) are religious traditions celebrated by Jewish people all over the world. Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are, considered to be, two of the most important Jewish holidays observed. Rosh Hashanah (Sept 8-9) translates as “head of the year” hence this is the Jewish New Year. Yom Kippur (Sept 16) translates into “Day of Atonement.”
Hispanic Heritage Month: Sept 15th – Oct 15th
Hispanic Heritage Month (download PDF) is an official celebration of American Citizens whose ancestry traces back to Spain, Mexico, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean. This month celebrates “the generations of Hispanic Americans who have positively influenced and enriched our nation and society”
Stay tuned for our October Awareness Month Resource Guide launching in October.
