Micro-Aggression & Anti-Oppression Training
Why should your company invest in their people through anti-oppression and microaggression training?
Microaggressions are a subtler form of racism and can be defined as:
“everyday verbal or behavioural interactions that send negative, harmful messages and insults toward minoritized people. Even though these interactions are called microaggressions, for people who experience them every day, they have a big impact”
– Dr. N. Nazim, personal communication, November 20, 2018
Implicit Bias Testing
TNT also offers Implicit Bias Testing as part of their anti-oppression and microaggression training to further the discussion on unconscious biases, including as it relates to the identification and examination of these personal biases. This training seeks to support an understanding of stereotyping, including its prevalence not just in those who are overtly racist, but also via cultural representations in the media. Training supports awareness and understanding of how the human brain functions, including the fact that stereotypes can occur without even realizing it.
