Season 4, Episode 006 -Healing Hurt Caused by Other Black Women at Work with Dr. Carey Yazeed

As Black women, we may be familiar with experiencing unsupportive or toxic experiences in the workplace at the hands of others.  But what about when the toxic behavior directed towards us is from someone that looks like us – another Black woman.

In this episode, Laura talks to Dr. Carey about this sensitive “family” discussion. Dr. Carey shares her insights on some of the root causes of why Black women hurt each other in the workplace, and how we can begin to acknowledge and heal these hurtful interactions.
