How to support women of color in the office?
Inclusion starts with being aware that although we work at the same workplace, we aren’t experiencing the workplace the same way. 54% of women of color feel more included now that they can work remotely. That feeling is generated because of the trauma they have experienced coming into the workplace.
Join Zapproved and Minda Harts, author of, “The Memo, What Women of Color Need to Know to Secure a Seat at the Table,” celebrating her recently released book, “Right Within: How to Heal from Racial Trauma in the Workplace,” as we have a candid conversation about the seen and unseen trauma in the workplace. Learn how we can support our teams and create a more inclusive culture for everyone.
“Racial trauma in the workplace doesn’t have to be the norm, and change starts internally. It starts with us activating our power.” ~ Minda Harts
