About the Event
Today's workplace is a tale of cities: some employees are thriving, while others are struggling.
Did you know that almost 50% of Black and Brown employees report experienceing discrimination in the workplace and that 75% of Black workers who experience discrimination said that it was due to race?
We have all experienced microaggressions in the workplace (or know someone who did). Some of these experiences leave a lasting scar on our psyche.
Join us for a sneak peak of the Free My Mind: Healing From Racial Stress in the Workplace workshop series. In this sneak peak, We’ll share
- An overview of what you can expect from the program
- Discuss the exercises that we will be teaching in the series
- Strategies for advocating with your employer to cover the sessions.
- Answers to your questions about the series
The workshop series is designed to help you learn to release these toxic experiences in order to foster a healthier you.
