Seeking Inclusion Excellence by Understanding Microaggressions in Health Professions Students
Webinar Details & Objectives
Join AACN and Dr. Kupiri ‘Piri’ Ackerman-Barger as we thoughtfully consider the impact of microaggressions in nursing learning environments and explore strategies to promote inclusion excellence. When the awareness of frequent racial microaggressions is present, then schools are poised to take action. Supporting students by mitigating and ameliorating racial microaggressions is a first step toward creating inclusive learning environments which not only help underrepresented minority students survive academia, but to thrive and reach their full academic potential.
- Determine the frequency that underrepresented health professions students experience microaggressions.
- Describe student experiences of microaggressions in health profession’s learning environments.
- Discuss the impact of microaggressions on student learning.
- Explore student perspectives of strategies for moving toward more inclusive learning environments.
