Despite the wealth of information available, racial microaggressions at work remain frequent and toxic. They can push us out of their jobs, stymie our careers, and compromise our mental well-being. I know this. You know this. But we also know that microaggressions are a symptom of cultural racism, not its source. Microaggressions are racist, yes, but do not represent all the ways racism shows up in our workplaces on a daily basis. So talking about microaggressions and interpersonal communication alone, while critical to our mental health and career progression as people of color, will not yield the transformative change we actually need.”
