Leadership and Diversity
March 1, 2023
It is well known in the D&I world, that the cumulative effect of microaggressions can be very damaging.
When speaking about inclusion, I usually define it as – recognizing, respecting and accommodating human differences.
Similarly, microaffirmations are small positive messages and actions that explicitly recognize and validate an individual and their identity.
For me, seeing Ramadan KitKat chocolates, which I have never seen before in my local supermarket, is a great example of inclusion and microaffirmation. It is wonderful to witness small changes such as this being taken on board by organisations and in society.
