Tough Times: Adult Educators, Microaggressions, and the Work Context
Mizzi, Robert C.
New Horizons in Adult Education & Human Resource Development, v29 n2 p54-59 Spr 2017
This paper examines the roots, types, and effects of microaggressions in the workplace and discusses implications for adult educators who work in a domestic and transnational context. In a domestic context, the literature describes microaggressions as being based on differences in race, gender, sexual orientation, culture, and professional role, which can negatively impact the work and welfare of adult educators. There is little consideration of the transnational work context, but the current scholarship points to difficulties in history and power differentials as being roots of microaggressions. Future directions are discussed that aim to re-shift the workplace culture to one of respect and inclusion for adult educators.
