It has long been assumed that Black and Brown professionals must remain stoic in the face of microaggressions and other forms of racism. We are told that we must not express our feelings of anger, disgust, frustration, infuriation, and sadness when you violate our wellbeing. Unfortunately, this form of microaggression often goes unchecked. It is a subtle form of racism that disrespects and invalidates our experience.
In this episode of Inclusion Unscripted, Margaret Spence will unpack - the microaggression, microinvalidation, and microassault that occur every day for Black and Brown professionals in the workplace.
Human Resources often contribute to the microaggressive tendencies of managers by failing to address these issues and by pretending that we are wrong from raising the issue of subtle racism. This form of microinvalidation needs to stop. We deserve to be respected, and you must acknowledge our feelings. You cannot continue to create environments that are not psychologically safe for Black and Brown professionals.
Inclusion Unscripted, where we’re not just talking about diversity and inclusion, we’re living it.
The Inclusion Unscripted Live Weekly Podcast is unapologetically honest about diversity and inclusion in the workplace. We believe that to push beyond diversity by the numbers, we need to start having conversations that no one else is willing to have. This show is a platform for those conversations. Each week, we dismantle the status quo and help organizations understand how to stand up for professionals of color in the workplace.
Our goal is to empower diverse listeners to build thriving careers by asking for what they want. We hope to inspire organizations and talent leaders to co-create more equitable and inclusive workplaces. Tune in every week for a new episode. You can find us on iTunes, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts. Inclusion Unscripted is live broadcast every Friday at 2 pm EST on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
