    Pulling back the curtain on the rigged system that enables workplace abuse

    Pulling back the curtain on the rigged system that enables workplace abuse

    Employers in the U.S. have WAY too much power. And that power reinforces white supremacy and the patriarchy. In this episode, I pull back the curtain on the system to show how abuse and discrimination at work intertwine to keep white men in power — and the rest of us out.

    How Dr. Bonnie Candia-Bailey's suicide from workplace abuse shows us we need to pass the Workplace Psychological Safety Act

    Dr. Bonnie Candia-Bailey was a VP of student affairs at Lincoln University in Missouri when she died by suicide on January 8, 2024. Reporters revealed that Dr. Candia-Bailey saw her reports of Lincoln University President Dr. John Moseley's alleged harassment and bullying not result in support. In this episode, I talk about what we know through the media about her situation at work and how white men in power set up the system for Black women to suffer.

    Social change requires collective action. Two targets in Texas, Dee Montanez and Stuart Mayper, have turned their experiences into a fight for psychologically safe workplaces.

    How Culturama.is pulls back the curtain on workplace culture — featuring founder Tomasz Urbanski

    How Culturama.is pulls back the curtain on workplace culture — featuring founder Tomasz Urbanski

    A big question on the minds of targets of workplace abuse is: how do I prevent abuse at work from happening again? While we can't prevent abuse at work but are now prepared to see red flags, we can arm ourselves with information about potential employers without having to sift through hundreds of reviews on job boards.

    Culturama.is is a game-changer for our job hunts and employer accountability. It's a brand-new tool that automatically analyses 4.8 million job review board opinions to help you compare the largest 1,500 global organizations on work-related problems so you can make informed career decisions. In this episode, I talk with Culturama founder Tomasz Urbanski about what Culturama is, how it works, and how Culturama can disrupt employer lack of accountability.

    Get a quick walk-through:

    Visit the tool:

    Then upvote and review it so it can climb the rankings, and we can get the word out to employers will pay attention to their ratings:
