Microaggressions are behaviors, speech, or actions that subtly and usually unconsciously or unintentionally express a prejudiced attitude towards an individual of a minority group.* Research shows that continued exposure to microaggressions in the workplace causes decreased performance, heightened stress response, loss of sense of confidence and well-being, and poor overall health in the long term.† Microaggressions can impact the eight dimensions of well-being. Learning to identify, manage, and cope with microaggressions is important for all surgeons throughout their entire careers.
Join a panel of experts as we continue explore the relationship between microaggressions and surgeon well-being. This webinar will feature a discussion on how to manage and cope with microaggressions as the receiver and upstander.
