Event Details

The Greater Burlington Women’s Forum is excited to present a virtual lunchtime event in partnership with Change the Story, Vermont Works for Women and Genclusive! Through a facilitated conversation we will explore what it looks like to go from deer in the headlights to ready to respond when addressing sexist microaggressions.

We’ll be diving into questions like:

  • What are microaggressions and what ripple effects do they have?
  • How can we feel better about addressing microaggressions as individuals and in groups?
