Overview

Overt racism is easy to spot. But microaggressions – subtle everyday slights, snubs and insults – are often invisible to anyone who hasn’t been on the receiving end themselves. This simulation shines a spotlight on some of the microaggressions that marginalised and under-represented people experience every day and empowers learners with strategies for responding to microaggressions when they see them.

This module is part of our Let’s Talk About Race series.

Learning objectives

Through this scenario, you will find out how to:

  • Reflect on your personal reaction to microaggressions
  • Identify common microinsults and microinvalidations and learn about how they impact the lives of marginalised people
  • Learn strategies for having constructive conversations about racism
  • Practise challenging others to reflect on their microaggressions safely and effectively.

This simulation has been co-developed in collaboration with George Brown College.
