About The Webinar

Preventing and Responding to Microaggressions Online

This webinar will provide headteachers, senior leaders, governors, teachers and support staff with a clearer and more detailed outline of online microaggressions: how we identify them; the ways that they tend to manifest online; and the consequences they can have for children and young people.

A recent academic study in the US found that young black people are subjected to – on average – five discriminatory experiences every day, with the majority of them occurring online. In some cases, the perpetrator is neither intending to cause offence nor even aware that they have done so, but these unconscious microaggressions are no less harmful. As educators, our duty to teach young people to be good global and digital citizens includes understanding how certain language can be offensive (and in some cases illegal), perpetuating stereotypes which undermine and offend people.

In this webinar, members of the Global Equality Collective – an online community of diversity, equality and inclusion experts – examine what microaggressions actually are; what the law states about them; and what schools can do educate their community.

Learning Outcomes

  • Identifying what is meant by the term “microaggressions” and exploring examples of how they can take place in the digital world

  • Recognising the damaging and cumulative impact of microaggressions, in both an online and offline context

  • Appreciating more fully the online landscape and context in which these microaggressions are perpetrated, both accidentally and deliberately

  • Understanding the role that schools have to play in preventing and responding to microaggressions

  • Broadening our knowledge of microaggressions to enable the education of not only students but also school staff
