WSLS 2013 Little Things Mean a Lot

This lecture took place on Thursday, March 28, 2013 at 7:00pm in the Leon J. Wood Seminary Building lobby at Grand Rapids Theological Seminary.

LITTLE THINGS MEAN A LOT: FROM RACIAL MICRO-INEQUITIES TO RACIAL MICRO-AGGRESSIONS

"Many of us experience, or know someone who experiences, daily messages that cause us to feel either excluded or included, engaged or discouraged, and valued or overlooked. It is the little things that mean a lot, that often tip the scale in favor of a pleasant or unpleasant work environment." Dr. Loyd-Paige presented an overview of concepts related to racial micro-aggression and micro-affirmations. Examples of micro-aggressions were presented and participants had the opportunity to explore ways to prevent or reduce micro-aggressions.
