    • Careers

Sharing meals can be a way of bringing colleagues together. But food can also be a source of judgment, shame and division in a workplace. Dr. Psyche Williams-Forson, author of Eating While Black: Food Shaming and Race in America, joins the podcast to discuss how employers and employees can be more mindful about cultural and class differences in approaches to food, eating, costs, waste and more. “Food plays a lot of different roles in our lives, whether we acknowledge it or not ... whether it’s in our homes or the workplace or any other institution we engage with,” Williams-Forson says.
