A few weeks ago, I spoke with a client who was distraught over humiliation she experienced at work after learning that many in her office believed she was only promoted because of Affirmative Action. She found it difficult to work because she wondered how many others held the same belief. As I tried to convince and remind her that she earned her promotion, she questioned her abilities. The experience shattered her confidence.
I recently uploaded a video on our YouTube career channel that addresses this workplace issue. Navigating Around Workplace Bias of shares the experience of many and offers tips that can help those who are experiencing workplace bias.
