The 2012 murder of Trayvon Martin and the acquittal of his white male assailant stirred New York University professor Minda Harts to action. She set out to help women of color attain corporate leadership roles and the accompanying power to bring about change. Harts offers solid, general advice to women of color who must navigate “microaggression” and unconscious bias. Her irreverent style belies the pain of the discrimination that remains prevalent in American workplaces. Speaking to recent college grads, young employees and older workers looking for a reboot, Harts also gives white managers valuable insight about way to increase inclusion.

Comment on this summary
4 months agoBut there is a triangle / pyramid structure at play, not everyone is going to be at the top because of the way the system is structured. Racism, sexism and homophobia are seen as inexcusable, and rightly so, but we are complicit in the impoverishment of our fellow humans. Remove income inequality and being pitted against one another in competition, and a lot of the problems associated with the 'isms' are softened.
