LISTEN: Advice For Addressing Microaggressions Head On

Feb 18, 2021

Since the racial reckoning last summer after the police killings of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, people are talking more openly about racism and inequality. Many workplaces are prioritizing training around diversity, equity and inclusion, and some people are feeling more comfortable talking about experiencing microaggressions. 

“Microaggressions are things that people often experience daily. And the people who commit microaggressions often don’t realize they’re doing so," said Renee Wells, director of education for equity and inclusion at Middlebury College in Vermont.

In an interview with NEXT, Wells -- who leads trainings on microaggressions -- gives advice on how to handle them in our everyday lives.

This interview was featured in the most recent episode of NEXT from the New England News Collaborative. Listen to the show here.
