Micro-inequities can be defined as differential treatment, based on minority status .These behaviors create internal barriers to persistence for students, reduce levels of self-efficacy, and increase stereotype threat. Through the often inadvertent perpetuation of micro-inequities, educators unintentionally suppress students’ drive to successful completion of academic goals. This workshop will identify the outcomes of micro-inequities within the academic environment and provide micro-affirmative techniques to mitigate the impact of micro-inequities.
