Executive Coaching for Marginalized Groups
Many people of color have found peace working from home during the pandemic, which has allowed them to avoid racism from superiors and colleagues in corporate environments.
Now that some organizations are requiring employees to return to the office employees of color say they are not thrilled to return to work environments in which they were regularly faced with daily micro-aggressions by the colleagues around them before the pandemic.
Many people of color feel the lack of diversity in many workplaces makes them feel obligated and pressured to take on extra emotional labor of returning to an environment where they were forced to feel uncomfortable.
Executive Coaching for marginalized groups helps prepares leaders to navigate the unique challenges of microaggressions in the workplace. Leaders who are a part of marginalized social groups have an additional challenge of navigating systems where they experience exclusion and isolation.
Recent research in the field of diversity and inclusion shows that women, people of color and LGBT leaders spend extra time and energy counteracting the burden of implicit basis and microaggressions at work.
