Everyday Exclusions

Everyday exclusions are the everyday insults and indignities that people from underrepresented groups experience as a result of their identity.

Also known as “microaggressions”, everyday exclusions undermine our efforts to build an inclusive working environment by making people feel like they don’t belong. This has a significant impact on the physical and mental wellbeing of those who experience this behaviour.

Watch the video below to find out more about everyday exclusions and what you can do when you experience them:
