Exploring Micro Aggressions

11:00am-12:15pm, Science 100

Presenter:  Hazel Rountree, JD, M.S., Ed, Wright State University

The term microaggression is a term coined by Psychiatrist and Harvard University professor Chester M. Pierce.  It descries the insults and dismissals he witnessed that were inflicted on women and non- white individuals.  Eventually the term came to encompass the casual degradation of any socially marginalized group, such as poor people, disabled people and sexual minorities.   Rountree will explore the social impact of microaggression on individuals found in marginalized groups.

This is part of the DATE (Diversity, Action, Training & Experience) Brown Bag Series.
