Sometimes discrimination and racism are clear, but “microaggressions” that lurk in subtle insulting comments and racist jokes can be just as destructive as overt discriminatory acts to students and faculty of color.

The ASU Faculty Women of Color Caucus is putting on a free keynote event with speaker Derald Wing Sue who will discuss the theory of microaggression and how it impacts university education as diversity and inclusion are major challenges nationwide in higher education.

Learn how you can make the Ira A. Fulton Schools community a friendly place for everyone.
