Do you know how to identify and deal with at-work discrimination that may harm you, your colleagues, or your institution?  Are you facing racial or other types of discriminatory practices in your workplace? It may be difficult to decipher microaggressions or other subtle yet harmful forms of racism or discrimination, or to effectively recognize and remedy these behaviors in ourselves and others. While workplace provisions may be in place, it can be challenging for those impacted to navigate the process.
