Full Summary: Participants will become more aware of the impact of their "slight" words and actions and how to begin dealing with them.

During this interactive workshop, participants will become more aware of the significant impact their words and actions (as well the “little things” they intentionally or unintentionally do) have on other people, begin dealing with micro-inequities in a forum where they are safely brought to the forefront for discussion, develop skills/strategies to send more constructive messages, and respond more effectively to negative messaging that can undermine their success. Presenters include Dr. Archie Ervin, vice president for Institute Diversity; Cheryl Cofield, J.D.; and Pearl Alexander, J.D.
