How to challenge power dynamics in the workplace: devising strategies to cope with daily racism and sexism.

Black women* and women* of Color are experiencing sexism and racism in the workplace due to their gender and their race, ethnicity, religion, name and/or skin color. We routinely experience micro-aggressions, exploitation, harassment, verbal and psychological violence without knowing that many others face similar situations. We often are not equipped to deal with the psychological and emotional burden that they cause and scientific research has shown that women of color and Black women are statistically more prone to depression and mental illness than white women and Black men/men of color. 

This coaching workshop leans on the crazy idea that power dynamics can be flipped.  We are going to learn how to write new narratives for ourselves via pragmatic tools: Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) , Self-affirmation tactics,  empowerment strategies, etc. Marie loves to say: power can be a decision. 

Come and join us on the journey of reappropriating power in the workplace through empowerment, storytelling and other exciting methodologies. We attempt to create a space of exchange and support for Black women* and Women* of Color. Marie will provide concrete tools on how to deal with racism and sexism in the workplace.
