Abstract

Microaggressions are a ubiquitous part of human interactions and may be more prevalent in the workplace today than blatant discrimination. To address these incidents of subtle prejudice, diversity trainings that incorporate the topic of microaggressions will be necessary. To develop such a training, the literature on microaggressions and diversity trainings was reviewed, individuals who conduct diversity training were interviewed, and survey data was collected to determine how and how much microaggressions are being attended to in organizational diversity trainings. Based on this information, an example of a diversity training within an organization that addresses microaggressions was developed.
