Micro-messages are the signals that we send to one another through our actions and behaviors. Although these messages may be “small,” their impact can be tremendous. Micro-messages are of two types: micro-inequities and micro-affirmations. Micro-inequities are the messages we send to other people that may cause them to feel devalued, offended, discouraged, or excluded. Micro-affirmations are the messages that we send to other people that may cause them to feel valued, appreciated, encouraged, and included. Microaggressions are brief exchanges that send denigrating messages to marginalized groups. In this session, the impacts of micro-messages and microaggressions on inclusion are considered.
