WhiteCoworker1: *unknowingly racially profiles poc-coworker while attempting to compliment*
WhiteCoworker2: *laughs* "You weren't paying attention in the Diversity Training, were you?"
POC-Coworker: *uncomfortable laugh, quietly forgives, leaves*
WhiteOthers: *talking about how some people are too sensitive and the importance of intentions'*
WhiteAntiRacistMe: *flabbergasted, angry, afraid to lose my job, leaves*
I didn't handle that well. I only said one comment, made it known that I was uncomfortable with it and left.
Does anyone have any experience with re-working their company's so-called "diversity training" to actually address issues of race? Did you get it approved? Any suggestions?
