Minda Harts, workplace equity subject matter expert, professor of public service at NYU and the author of three books, shared her experience with workplace trauma at the Women of Color and Their Allies event (WOCA).
The WOCA session, titled “Fireside Chat: Healing from Workplace Trauma,” featured a discussion between Harts and Carolynn Johnson, CEO of DiversityInc.
“I thought about the courage of all the black women who had come before me, the ones that we know about, the ones that we don’t know about,” said Harts. “I am a direct beneficiary of their courage, but who was going to be a beneficiary of my courage? Are they just going to inherit the same workplace that I inherited?”
