Managing Microaggressions: What to Do When It Gets Personal Webinar Series

  • June 09, 2021
  • 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Part 2

Hosted by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Surgeon Well-Being Program, ACS' Committee on Diversity Issues, International Relations Committee, and Women in Surgery Committee.

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.
