WiCyS Leadership Series: The Power of Language and Microaggressions in the Workplace

June 17, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

WiCyS Leadership Series Logo 6/17

Leading with equity, inclusion and allyship is a conversation where we, as volunteer leaders within the WiCyS organization, agree to engage in a dialogue from a place of consent for all of us to learn and grow. The WiCyS Leadership Series: Speak. Listen. Community. cultivates the community and space for that dialogue.

The June session of WiCyS Leadership. Series: Speak. Listen. Community. will be addressing the power of language and microaggressions in the workplace. Do we truly understand the meaning of the words we are using? There are words and phrases that are in the common vernacular today that have racist origins. This is an opportunity to learn more about how using these words can impact the workplace today. We will also discuss how microaggressions impact the workplace through language.

Join us Thursday, June 17 at 1pm CT as WiCyS member, Jessica Robinson facilitates the discussion.

If you are a WiCyS volunteer in a leadership role and have not received an invite from Lynn Dohm, email her at lynn@wicys.org.

Upon registration, you will receive resources to enrich the conversation. Total preparation time: 45 minutes
