Beating Backlash Against BIPOC Womxn Professionals

With recent pushes for racial equality and insecurity fueled by a global pandemic, struggles for power run rampant, exacerbating workplace discrimination inflicted upon some of the most vulnerable professionals—BIPOC womxn. In this session, four experts will discuss the ways by which companies can create immediate and lasting progress by using information and technology to counter the backlash BIPOC womxn professionals will face in this volatile climate, such as (1) insight on why and how discrimination and unconscious bias against BIPOC womxn manifest in workplaces and remote work spaces, (2) effective strategies for changing workplace dynamics to make them more hospitable to BIPOC womxn, and (3) advancements in technology and digital resources that help retain such valuable talent.
