We are all familiar at this point with #metoo and many of us have read the headlines about how we are most definitely not living in a post-racial society. We may think we can leave the headlines behind when we get to work but the reality is we all experience power and privilege in a variety of ways. Whether it’s conducting a performance review, making a hiring decision, interacting with our co-workers on Slack, or participating in a team meeting, we’ll take a look at why and how power and privilege come into play and examine ways each of us can participate in creating a more equitable place to work.
