"What Did I Say?" The Psychological Impact Of Microaggressions

Join FSC for an interactive workshop presented by Amandia Speakes-Lewis, PhD, LCSW-R, committed mental health clinician and college professor- to address the intersectionality of implicit bias, microaggressions, and how our behavior and opinions may have a psychological impact on those around us.

As professionals employed in multicultural organizations, one must become increasingly self-aware of their own individual experiences, values, and how it could influence or impact the overall work environment and daily interactions with colleagues.  


Dr. Speakes-Lewis is a New York State Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a Masters degree and PhD in social work from Stony Brook University and Adelphi University.  Additionally, she is a published author of multiple scholarly articles and book chapters related to mental health, microaggressions, DEI, and social emotional learning.  


  • Explore how implicit bias influences microaggressions exhibited within the workplace.  
  • Differentiate implicit bias and microaggressions.
  •  Increase awareness of various behaviors and attitudes that may be interpreted as discriminatory.
  •  Understand cultural humility to sustain a positive work environment.

Farmingdale State College welcomes all members of the campus community to attend.
