We will explore some of the hurdles and potholes we have had to jump over and dig out of as well as some of the stereotypes we have had to overcome in order to authentically succeed in the workplace (e.g. quiet Asian, angry Black woman, subservient/hetero feminine woman, misgendering). Queer womxn of color experiencing these issues for the first time in their professional lives or that may have spent time in the trenches will learn strategies for how to deal with the slights, insults, bias and micro-aggressions, and will hear perspectives about how these womxn navigated career crises. We welcome everyone to come and explore these issues with us through a safe and candid dialogue.
Speakers: Yemi Adegbonmire (The Bail Project); Nona Lee; Angela Lim (Viz.ai, Inc.); Bendita Cynthia Malakia (Hogan Lovells)
