Let’s face it. If you’re a woman, you’ve probably had some pretty crappy stuff said to you at work. But did the guy who said it know how crappy it actually was? Microaggressions are small, often seemingly-harmless comments that can make folks in any kind of minority feel out of place or talked down to.

This session is for folks of all genders, races, sexual orientations, and ages who want to be a little more conscious about the way they treat one another. You’ll leave with plenty of examples of how to recognize microaggressions and how to deal, whether you’re the recipient, the supplier, or the passer-by.

After landing a job at a kick ass company in Ann Arbor, she’s taken on a new passion for accessibility and good front end design.
