Last Friday, October 28, 2022, student leaders and staff from the Learning Center and STEM Center held their second collaborative professional development training of the semester. Program Services Coordinator Josh Lindo from Student Equity and Support Programs led the teams through defining types of microaggressions and the importance of addressing them on campus and in the workplace. Students and staff shared their experiences with microaggressions, when they have been the recipient and the aggressor, and how this influenced their experiences on Skyline College’s campus. Josh Lindo then worked with the entire group to give each student leader tools and strategies to address these aggressions here and in their own communities. The training was a great opportunity for student staff to work with their peers and other leaders on our campus while learning how to improve the student experience here at Skyline College.
