This is a stressful time when many of us are fearful of Covid 19 and weary of social distancing. The protests of police violence against African Americans and the resulting anger in the streets has added to the tension. Overt expressions of racism and other forms of prejudice are more common. These are damaging to the individual and society.A micro-aggression is a subtle and often unintentional offense.

They include:

  • comments such as “You are a credit to your race;” ·       
  • assuming a person of color cannot afford an item in a store; ·        
  • ignoring a woman in a business meeting; ·       
  • assuming all Asians are Chinese or all Hispanics are Mexican.

About the Presenter Gail Price-Wise


Gail Price-Wise received her degree from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in 1986 and she has spent her career working to improve trust and empathy among people of different cultural backgrounds. She addresses culture very broadly to include race, ethnicity, language, religion, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic level, and other factors that divide people. Ms. Price-Wise has led workshops in “Managing Your Prejudices” for over 5,000 people. “Managing Your Prejudices” is based on the idea that all people automatically pre-judge others based on common stereotypes. She argues that we can learn to override automatic thoughts in order treat others as unique individuals. Ms. Price-Wise has spoken at events sponsored by many organizations including ICABA, Black Lives Matter, the Florida Department of Children and Families, the Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom, JAM and All Interfaith, Cleveland Clinic Florida, Memorial Healthcare, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, and Harvard University.  She has published several articles about racism and other forms of prejudice in USA Today and the Sun Sentinel, including “Papa John’s John Schnatter Should Have Admitted Racial Bias and Learned to Do Better” (USA Today, 2018), “The More Subtle Racism: Lessons in Misconceptions” (Sun Sentinel, 2017), and “Law Enforcement Can Learn to Manage Biases” (Sun Sentinel, 2015). Her book, “An Intoxicating Error: Mistranslation, Medical Malpractice, and Prejudice” describes how cultural and language barriers led to a medical tragedy.

Ms. Price-Wise is a past president of the Harvard Chan Alumni Council, a past president of the Harvard Club of Broward County, a former member of the Harvard Advisory Council on Children’s Health, and a past member of the Board of the Broward Healthy Start Coalition. She is married to a prominent animal rights attorney. She has a daughter and three step-children.
