The conversation about being black in America can't be covered in an hour, a week, a month, or even years. We invite you into our private world where a black woman and a white woman keep the conversation going. Together we talk candidly about vulnerable topics that we hope will help the corporate community to learn and grow. The change we all want to see is going to take many open, collaborative conversations and it starts here.

8. Code-Switching in the Workplace
Join Lizzy and Tricia as they discuss code-switching and the ways that it presents in the workplace as well as everyday life.
Code-switching is often used to define the practice of alternating between two or more languages. Culturally, it is the act of changing our behaviors including mannerisms, speech, and dress to conform to a cultural norm that is different from what we might do authentically with our trusted inner circle. Code-switching can be harmful internally as it creates tension between self-expression and social acceptance.
Microaggressions are subtle, everyday slights that can be intentional or unintentional directed towards members of a marginalized group.
