Centennial Park, 151 E. St. Charles Road. Elmhurst

Join us for a workshop on Microaggressions led by Dr. Jessica Sim, Elmhurst University professor and social psychologist specializing in diversity, equity, and inclusion. This workshop aims to enhance participants’ understanding of the impact of microaggressions on various identities, such as race, gender, disability and more.

Through small group discussions and interactive activities, you will develop a deeper awareness of microaggressions, learn to differentiate between intention and impact, recognize common forms of microaggression, and gain practical strategies to address them in everyday life. This workshop provides valuable insights on fostering inclusive communities where individuals from all backgrounds can feel a sense of belonging.

This free program, co-sponsored by the Elmhurst Branch of the American Association of University Women, ComeUnity, and the Elmhurst Park District, open to non-Elmhurst residents. Registration is required and is open now, so please register early. Register by calling the Elmhurst Park District at (630) 993-8193.
