Modern Discrimination: Subtle but Significant: Mikki Hebl at TEDxRiceU

Many displays of discrimination are now prevented by protective laws. However, subtle forms of discrimination are pervasive and enacted
in everyday interpersonal interactions. These micro-transgressions, incivilities, and other negative interpersonal biases are subtle but very profound in both their display and implications. Mikki Hebl, a professor in psychology and management at Rice University, studies such discrimination as well as reduction strategies.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
