Microaggressions are the everyday verbal, nonverbal, and environmental slights, snubs or insults (whether intentional or unintentional) which communicate hostile, derogatory or negative messages to target persons based solely upon their marginalized group membership. In many cases, these hidden messages may invalidate the group identities or experiential reality of target persons, demean them on a personal or group level, communicate they are lesser human beings, suggest they do not belong with the majority group or relegate them to inferior status and treatment.

To aid our AMA community mission to elevate DEI as a priority throughout the marketing industry as a whole, we’ve carefully crafted a diverse group of panelists from all over the country to discuss their personal experiences with microaggressions in the workplace.

In this session, you’ll hear personal accounts of microaggressions for each of our panelists that occurred at various levels in their careers. You’ll learn how it’s impacted not only their personal and professional lives, but the lives of those around them, and tips for how to prevent, address and overcome microaggressions in your own organization.

Finally, we’ll break out into smaller groups for a more intimate discussion and Q&A with our esteemed panelists.
