Some BIPOC employees are hesitant about returning to the office due to fears of discrimination.

Nov 30 2021

Some BIPOC employees are hesitant about returning to the office due to fears of discrimination. YPulse’s What’s Next For Work trend research found that 51% of 13-39-year-old BIPOC consumers say working from home / remotely would make them enjoy working at a job more, and for Mila Olumogba, who is a Black woman, working from home during lockdowns has made it easier to avoid microaggressions at work, which she said was a constant experience for her pre-pandemic. She isn’t the only one: According to expert Monnica Williams, working from home has provided “a mental break” to employees who are BIPOC and are used to dealing with microaggressions or not feeling respected enough. As more companies begin considering a return to in-person working, their feelings of safety are being threatened. According to more than a dozen people of color surveyed by CBC, including lawyers, public servants, and managers, the thought of returning to the office has made them feel “anxious.” Along with dealing with microaggressions, many of them do not want to resume “code switching,” changing their mannerisms, appearance, or behavior to fit “what is appropriate for a mostly White office setting.” According to one agency that specializes in diversity and inclusion, employers must do more than just implement diversity boards and equity workshops. One way is to offer free sources to help workplaces acknowledge and ask about the challenges their BIPOC employees face to identify patterns rather than “relying on radicalized employees to carry the burden of change.” (CBC)
