Mindfulness at Work: Micro-inequities and Micro-affirmations


Micro-inequities (also called micro-aggressions) as subtle, sometime seemingly harmless, comments or actions devalue other. No matter how kind or aware may consider ourselves, have capacity to harmfully impact others by practicing micro-inequities. The challenge with micro-inequities is not meant to intentionally cause hurt or harm, and they arise from semi-conscious state. Here are a few examples:

Continuously mispronouncing or misspelling someone’s name

Rolling your eyes even when you think no one is looking

Cutting down ideas before they can be entertained

Sarcasm and disparaging jest

Interrupting or completing sentences for people

Acting disinterested in meetings


Aside from being aware own tendencies, the best way to combat our potential, to devalue others through micro-inequities to practice micro-affirmations. Are subtle, but high impact, words and actions that affirm another’s value. Examples include:

Holding the door for someone

Saying hello

Introducing people to each other

Listening without interrupting

Acknowledging and making sure you fully understand someone’s idea or opinion

Acknowledging someone’s good work to others

Sometimes the simplest are challenging, but keep up! If continue to aware of tendencies, and keep practicing positive behaviors will begin to notice the benefits we offer others as well as the benefits we receive ourselves. Let’s work together for better outcomes!
