    Micro-Inequities in the Workplace: What Are They and Why Do They Matter?

    •A subtle, sometimes subconscious, message that devalues,  discourages, and ultimately impairs performance.
    •Communication interactions that include some and exclude others.
    •Subtle slights and snubs that can devalue a person.
    •Occur whenever people are perceived to be “different.” A result of inherent biases regarding anything from gender and race to age and class.
    •These messages can take the shape of looks, gestures or tones of what is said or written.

    The cumulative effect of micro-inequities often leads to damaged self-esteem and, eventually, withdrawal from co-workers in the office.

    During the presentation, attendees will learn how to recognize Micro Inequities and how we, as HR professionals, should deal with them.

    By the end of this session participants will learn:

    1.The Definition of Micro Inequities 
    2.The Impact of Micro Inequities in the Workplace 
    3.Turning Micro Inequities into Micro Affirmations
