So why am I sharing my personal journey with you all? Because as we shift the way we teach, the way we work, and the way we communicate with our colleagues, the issues that I mentioned above do not change. Currently, there are 5 Black CEO’s in the top Fortune 500 companies. None of those 5 CEOs are women. We live in what Dr. Tatum calls a smog — we’re consistently surrounded by implicit biases and microaggressions and components of white supremacy culture in the workplace- regardless of whether it’s on a Zoom call, an email chain, or behind the scenes in a Slack channel.
