Black women addressed a number of the crazy and hurtful things that happen to them in the workplace Tuesday afternoon with the Twitter hashtag #BlackWomenAtWork, reports The Huffington Post.
From The Huffington Post:
…“I’m surrounded everyday by brilliant, confident, incredible black professional women who get demeaned despite their prowess. Today, I was over it,” Packnett told The Huffington Post. “I have deep an abiding respect for Congresswoman Waters and Ms. Ryan who are both trailblazers in their fields. They are to be respected, just like every other black woman who rises each day to contribute to this society in ways that are all-too-often taken for granted.”
Several powerful women — including ESSENCE Editor-in-Chief Vanessa De Luca and Love & Basketball director Gina Prince-Bythewood — tweeted their thoughts and unpacked their workplace experiences with #BlackWomenAtWork, reports the New York Daily News.
