Event hosted by: Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility

Join VBSR and Tabitha Moore from Intentional Evolution Consulting for an interactive training designed to deepen your understanding of Microaggressions and how they present in systems of business.

Participants will engage in both learning and reflection, emerging with strategies for undoing inequity and guiding pillars to support transformation, with a focus on:

  • Manifestations of oppressive systems
  • How oppressive systems lead to microaggressions

This session won’t bring about transformation on its own – that part is up to YOU! But, it is a great place to start or continue your JEDI journey as we learn to recognize and respond to identity-based harms.

This training is part of the VBSR Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (JEDI) Training Series – Fall 2023. VBSR Members who register for all four trainings receive a discounted rate of $150 (savings of 20%/$30 per person).
