This presentation provides a primer on discrimination in the workplace. We will identify prohibited grounds of discrimination pursuant to the Ontario Human Rights Code; and discuss different forms of discrimination. We will provide a deeper dive into one form of discrimination - micro-aggressions - and will discuss how to recognize them and respond to them. Finally, we will provide practical tips on how to reduce the incidence of micro-aggressions and engage in micro-validations in order to create a more inclusive workplace.
