Client Testimonials

Cleo and the team at Mission Diverse delivered a brilliant session for their Microaggression Training day for our team. The session was informative, fun and allowed us to have challenging yet useful conversations in a safe space. The considered structure of the day meant a significant volume of information was communicated to us, without it feeling overwhelming or draining. Considering the amount of information there was to take in, it didn’t feel draining. This training has given our organisation us a lot of food for thought and made us feel more confident in bringing positive action into our organisation.

Following the Bar Council’s recommendation that chambers engage in Microaggression Training, we researched providers and found Mission Diverse. Their website seemed to tick all the boxes we were looking to cover and having spoken to Cleo Morris on the telephone, I felt confident that Mission Diverse would be able to offer a course that covered our needs. It didn’t disappoint. Both members and staff attended the session which was engaging and inclusive and Cleo herself was first class in the way she presented. We will definitely use Mission Diverse again where appropriate and I’m delighted to recommend them to any other organisation looking for Microaggression Training.

Subtle Yet Harmful

Microaggressions are a particularly insidious form of discrimination often disguised as a throw away comment or action. Microaggressions are often small, but persistent forms of discrimination and overtime they can have damaging effects on the people who are subjected to them. Because microaggressions are subtle they often go unnoticed by the people who are unaffected by them, meaning those who are affected do not receive the support they need.

FAQ

Microaggression Training helps you understand what microaggressions are, how and why they are used, and how to address them. This training will use real life examples of microaggressions in the workplace to help further your understanding of them and the damaging effects they can have as well as how to address microaggressions when employees raise these issues.

Microaggressions are a type of discrimination that due to their often subtle nature go unnoticed by the people they are not directed at and may even be brushed aside as being trivial when instances of microaggressions , meaning microaggressions are rarely treated with the same severity as more overt forms of discrimination.

However, for victims of microaggressions these types of behaviours are far from trivial and the often persistent nature of them will eventually take its toll. All forms of discrimination are unacceptable in the workplace and if microaggressions are not taken into account, you may be missing an factor in your efforts to combat discrimination in the workplace, and it could lead to legal problems down the line.

Our employability and enterprise programmes provide education, mentoring and personal development training to people from underrepresented and disadvantaged communities. By doing this we hope to provide those from underrepresented communities with the necessary skills and knowledge to enter entrepreneurship and the workplace (…or maybe come and work in your company!).
