What They Are, How to Spot and Talk About Them

Micro-Inequities (sometimes called microaggressions) are subtle actions that single out, marginalize, devalue or overlook an individual. They have a chilling effect on the individual and the team. In some cases, the person may not know that he/she/they is behaving in an inappropriate manner.

In this workshop, we will explore what they are, how to spot them, the effect micro-inequities have on the workplace, and discuss ways to address them.

Join us in this workshop to:

  • Identify and discuss specific types of microinequities and their effects
  • Learn ways to address these acts when they happen to us and to others
  • Manage micro-inequities in the workplace
  • Develop strategies for helping others change behaviors

Who it is for:
Individuals and groups interested in gaining effective strategies and tactics for recognizing and addressing Micro-Inequities.


  • Participant Workbook and Conversation Starter
  • On demand video if offered as a virtual workshop
  • Optional: 12 monthly email tips, tricks and reminders in follow up

Length: 90 minutes

Micro-Inequities are insidious slights that may go unnoticed in the workplace if we are not aware of them, learn to spot them, label and address them. They result in a poor workplace culture, and make under-represented groups and individuals feel singled out and diminished. This workshop will provide tools to:

  • Create more inclusive environments
  • Address current racial and gender inequities
  • Attract, retain and advance professional talent
  • Expand business development opportunities

Let CADIA facilitate the conversations that foster understanding, growth and change.
