Overview: Black neighborhoods, colleges, and churches all offer a safe hub for Black people in the community to exist without the threat of racialized oppression. The transition from a space that embraces “Black culture” to a “Euro-centric” work environment that suppresses it can be a stressful experience. Many African American students, particularly those graduating from HBCUs, experience culture shock when they face micro-aggression, implicit bias, and inequities in performance expectations, compensation, and access to support networks and resources. For many, the threat of being a misfit leads to depression, Black-excellence fatigue, and burnout. This workshop will offer practical ways to navigate and succeed (without losing yourself) as organizations work toward creating a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment.
