Disarming Microaggressions

    Where are you from?
    You’re so articulate.
    I don’t see color.

    Microaggressions may sound like compliments, but they carry hidden messages that are harmful to individuals and your workplace. We created this course in partnership with Dr. Derald Wing Sue, one of the leading researchers and authors on the topic of microaggressions.

    “The gold standard of anti-bias training…”

    ouch that stereotype hurts, how to speak up against stereotypes

    A scenario that shows how complex microaggressions can be for a person who’s targeted.
    The course uses many scenarios, examples, activities and quizzes.

    “Joel Lesko and SunShower Learning have produced the gold standard of anti-bias training that will have a lasting and beneficial impact in business, industry and education. If equity, diversity and inclusion are important goals for your organization, community and the nation, then this interactive training video will teach employers and employees concrete skills to confront and disarm microaggressions (bias and bigotry).

    The training teaches targets, allies and bystanders specific actions that involve making the ‘invisible’ visible, disarming microaggressions, and educating offenders. It is filled with real-life examples of harmful microaggressions, along with tested intervention actions that can be taken to create norms that reinforce an inclusive, respectful, and welcoming environment.”

    What are microaggressions?

    It’s a term that’s been around since the 70’s, but what are microaggressions, and what is the impact on people who’ve been the target of a microaggression? How can you speak up as a bystander or ally? And, if you’ve said something offensive, how can you recover and rebuild trust?

    Disarming Microaggressions shows learners how comments or questions that might sound harmless or even like compliments, actually carry a hidden message that hurts. The course includes activities to identify the hidden messages and then practice for how to speak up and interrupt a microaggression when it happens or afterwards.

    Available languages:

    The streaming video course is with English captions and with fully translated text and captions: Spanish (Latin America) version, “Desarmar las microagresiones”, and French Canadian version, “Désarmorcer les micro-agressions”.

    In what formats is your training offered?

    We offer our training programs in three formats:
    • Self-Paced Online Learning – asynchronous e-Learning course
    • Trainer’s Toolbox – provides access to our videos, Leader’s Guide, PowerPoint files and handouts
    • Interactive Live Webinars – SunShower experts deliver training in customized workshops on Zoom

    What is Self-Paced Online Learning?

    The streaming video course includes the video and offers a bit more information and experience for learners. It’s still short – just 15 minutes! The course has a 10-question quiz at the end and offers a downloadable completion certificate.

    With a 1-year license, you can add this SCORM 1.2 course to your Learning Management System and offer it to your employees inside your own training ecosystem. You can train a handful of people or thousands. Select the level of usage you anticipate and purchase here, or book 20 minutes with Joel Lesko, SunShower’s Producer/President, to craft a custom license.

    What is the Trainer’s Toolbox and how does it work?

    The Trainer’s Toolbox is designed to replace DVDs and USBs. No more, “Who’s got the USB?” or “Uh-oh, we lost it”. All the materials that used to reside on a DVD or USB are now easily accessible from the SunShower Learning website, ready for you whenever you conduct a training. The Trainer’s Toolbox can be used for in-person or virtual training sessions, regardless of your computer’s operating system. You can play the videos full-screen and and present on Teams, Zoom and other virtual platforms.

    Your subscription includes full access to the videos as well as a downloadable Leader’s Guide, PowerPoint files and PDF handouts. And, pricing is flexible, based on team size: small (1-5 facilitators), medium (6-14 facilitators) or large (15-29 facilitators). Upon subscribing, you’ll receive an email from our website with the link and login credentials.

    How is the Self-Paced Online Learning course different from the Trainer’s Toolbox?

    The online course is designed for individual, self-paced use by logging into your own learning management system (LMS) or accessing SunShower’s online LMS. In contrast, the Trainer’s Toolbox is a set of resources (videos, a Leader’s Guide, PowerPoint files and handouts) for you and/or your team of trainers to use to conduct your own instructor-led training – in-person or on virtual platforms like Zoom.

    Are your online courses accessible?

    Accessibility is not just about captions. We are committed to the highest values of accessibility. To achieve that, our roadmap includes not only the basics – transcripts, captions, alt text, and many more features – but also the Extended Audio Description (AD) and other critical corrections. Inclusion is built into every aspect of our work. Each course is at a different stage of development.
