I am so sorry you are experiencing this and grateful that you have shared this story publicly. I urge you to prioritize your own well being and find another employer. Five years ago two young black women working for tech companies confided in me about their workplace experiences, their own managers would say “you know we just hired you because you’re Black.” They inspired me to create my company, Racy Conversations, to inspire the first antiracist generation. I have facilitated workshops at many companies. If leaders don’t care, don’t role model, and don’t hold people accountable, nothing changes. The bottom line is tech companies have zero incentive to change unless the employees organize and walk out or sue them. It is a huge risk to sue. If you are seeking legal representation I highly recommend Felicia Medina of Medina Orthwein in Oakland. If I can be of assistance in any way don’t hesitate to reach out.

Founder, Racy Conversations Inspiring the antiracist generation.
