Join us for an interactive working session on the HERdles of Microaggressions and how to be an Upstander, which inherently creates an inclusive environment. Using real examples from our industry, we’ll explore how we can build the courage to speak up when needed, how to stand up for yourself, how to leverage de-escalation techniques, and how to be an ally.
