The first talk of the CALS Equity and Diversity Committee’s Spring 2017 Lunch and Learn series has been rescheduled:
“Did you really just say that? Identifying and Responding to Microaggressions”
Gabe Javier, LGBT Campus Center
Thursday, Feb. 16, 2017

Microaggressions are often unintentional, everyday, verbal and nonverbal slights or insults that communicate negative messages about or to a group of marginalized people. In this presentation, participants will discuss microaggressions and their cumulative impact on targeted populations, and learn ways to interrupt and address microaggressions in different contexts.
Members of the CALS community are invited to bring a lunch and join the discussion.
And please save the date for the second talk of the EDC Lunch and Learn series:
Don Stanley, Life Sciences Communication

A full announcement regarding the second talk will be sent out the week of Feb. 6.
