Microaggressions, often stemming from implicit bias, may not always be recognized by the aggressor. When microaggressions are not addressed appropriately, they perpetuate, harm individuals, and become increasingly ignored. To prevent this, it is important to know how and when to step up and address microaggressions. This week’s edition of the ADVANCE Weekly Roundup introduces the R.A.V.E.N. framework for responding to microaggressions. Please take the time to read, analyze, and adopt the R.A.V.E.N. framework so you are prepared to address microaggressions and improve our campus climate so that everyone can excel.
The ADVANCE Weekly Roundup is brought to you by ADVANCE at Michigan Tech, which is an NSF-funded initiative dedicated to improving faculty career success, retention, diversity, equity, and inclusion.
