We spent an hour with Kiama unpacking microaggressions in the workplace, including those that now happen in a virtual space. Kiama drops so much wisdom about the WHAT, and also takes the time and space to impart knowledge as to the WHAT NOW? She gives excellent takeaways about what you can do if you are part of a traditionally minoritized group that experiences microaggressions, and also how to be a good ally if you have the privilege of not experiencing them. This episode was straight FIRE (where are my emojis??!). You don't want to miss it.
