An Introduction to Privilege, Bias & Microaggressions

An Introduction to Privilege, Bias & Microaggressions

Join this highly interactive webinar to explore and discuss topics of privilege, bias

and microaggressions. During this training, you’ll spend time reflecting on and
discussing your own identities and experiences of identity. Next, we’ll define power,
privilege and oppression and discuss agent and target identities. Lastly, you’ll learn
about bias and microaggressions, how to build your awareness of biases and you’ll
have an opportunity to practice responding to bias or microaggressions that you may
encounter in your role leading volunteers

This training will be facilitated by Maureen Bourgeois, MAVA's VISTA Program and Personnel Manager.
