Microaggressions are subtle, denigrating messages delivered to members of marginalized groups, and they can negatively affect an organization's culture. Experiences of microaggressions can lead individuals to feel increasingly dissatisfied with their jobs, which may result in their physical or psychological departures from their organizations.

This webinar, jointly sponsored by and the Library Leadership and Management Association (LLAMA) and the ALA Office for Diversity, will define microaggressions, cover racial microaggressions and microaggressions toward LGBT people, and discuss how this affects librarians and the potential implications for the future of the profession.
