Subtle Slights: Understanding the Impact of Unconscious Bias and Microaggressions

November 6, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

In this event, Shakoor Ward, PhD, Professional Development Coordinator, University Park, will lead the group through information on microaggressions.

The event is part of the diversity education training made available by the University and is sponsored by the Gender Equity Group of the Sustainability Council of Penn State College of Medicine and Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center

Microaggressions speak to the attitudes, dispositions and comments that many times lead to the devaluing of members of a community – the unspoken, often unrecognized “little things” that can foster attitudes of inequity and incivility.

This session will focus on recognizing, validating and ultimately managing the display and impact of microaggressions.


  • Consider and understand the impact of personal perceptions and individual lenses.
  • Define and identify types of microaggressions.
  • Develop strategies and resources to remedy instances of potential or perceived incivility.
