  • Image preview 4:00pm - 5:00pm: Change or Charity? Exploring the Potential Unintended Consequences of Doing Good

    When many of us see individuals struggling or widespread social problems, we are compelled to intervene. What happens, however, when we don’t utilize a critical lens to examine the potential unintended consequences of our well-intentioned actions? This interactive workshop will interrogate the differences between charity and change. Together, we will develop best change practices for social justice advocates and activists.

    Microaggressions are the commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, and environmental insults, both intentional and unintentional, that communicate negative slights to a person or group, based on race, gender, sexual orientation, or religion (Sue, 2010). They can have profound cumulative mental and physical impacts on individuals and institutional climate.

    This 90 minute workshop will introduce participants to microaggressions. We will also practice and develop fundamental skills for recognizing and interrupting  microaggressions on campus, in the classroom and in ourselves.
