How LGBTQ+ women can respond to microagg…
LGBTQ+ women and other LGBTQ+ individuals impacted by the biases women face often experience microaggressions at work. These can include offensive comments, invasive personal questions, or exclusion from social events. While the burden should not be on LGBTQ+ employees to fix these problems, research shows that speaking up can make you feel more empowered. In this video, we share strategies for the most effective ways to push back against microaggressions, such as practicing self-care, asking questions, and reaching out to others who’ve had similar experiences for validation and support.
This video is part of the Leadership Fundamentals For LGBTQ+ Groups Playlists.
