During this 1-hour interactive, scenario-based workshop, the Advocate facilitators invite Mines men to explore incidents experienced by their women colleagues. Participants will practice appropriate actions to take in those situations.
The content of this workshop was created in consultation with the Mines Women Advisory Board and was designed for the men audience. The workshop is facilitated by Mines DI&A Advocates.
Through interactive skill-building group work, this 1-hour learning and skill development opportunity discusses how to challenge microaggressions (unintentional slights or invalidations that make people feel unwelcome) when they arise and how to become agents of change.

This workshop involves three, 1-hour sessions.
Are you curious about the genesis and evolution of DI&A at Mines? What questions do you have? Where would you like to plug in to our culture of shared responsibility?
Our team joins yours for 10-15 minutes to provide an overview of the DI&A Strategic Plan and the progress of the plan’s 24 recommendations to improve diversity, inclusion and access at Mines.
We know one workshop is not enough to foster positive social change. It’s just the start.
Learning communities are one avenue to continue learning and practicing diversity, equity and inclusion habits and skills. All workshop participants are invited to join a community that suits them best. Participation in mitigating microaggressions or minimizing microaggressions workshops prior to joining a learning community is recommended.
