Disrupting Bias: Examining Microaggressions in K-12 Education

Students in the K-12 education system increasingly encounter situations in which words and behaviors may inadvertently insult or invalidate their lived experience and ultimately impact academic achievement. Sue (2010) posits that dismissiveness, invisibility, and subjugation of historically marginalized groups is pervasive and creates uncomfortable, unsafe, and sometimes violent realities in education. Use of participant experiences in this webinar will illustrate the prevalence of microaggressions in K-12 and offer microactivism as a conduit for achieving social justice. Through presentation, discussion, and interactive exercises, participants will gain a deeper understanding of microaggressions and its impact on interpersonal interactions across various identities. Additionally, participants will explore methods to disrupt personal biases and respond to microaggressions.

Both GATE and non-GATE members are welcome to attend this free virtual event.
