What’s the cost of “just being yourself” when you don’t look like the majority of workers or the powerful people in your organization? When society is rife with negative stereotypes about minorities when power imbalances plague workplaces, trust can be eroded and people churn through emotions like doubt and fear. That costs us all. Brian's guests on this episode are Josh Grant, a community manager who went public with his experiences of discrimination at his former employer, and social psychologist Claude Steele, who discusses how stereotypes can upend work culture.
