Snap judgments are easy to make, like categorizing individuals based on gender stereotypes, socio-economic status, educational level and other characteristics. These unconscious categorizations can be microaggressions. Defined by Oxford Languages as indirect, subtle or unintentional discrimination against members of a marginalized group, microaggressions may negatively impact your interactions with clients, co-workers and community members within the rental housing industry. Together, we will have a meaningful and focused dialogue about identifying microaggressions, practical mitigation strategies and coping techniques for those people on the receiving end to create awareness in our day-to-day lives.
