PODCAST: Racism and K-12 Workplace Well-Being
by Rohan Thompson
How is racism a workplace wellness issue? Most workplace wellness programs are focused on the individual - helping people deal with stress, workload, and enhancing their communication skills. Often, the solution is to provide tools such as webinars, programs, and employee benefits. While these programs and tools are all great, they often ignore how organizations can actually be environments that increase stress and mental health issues among racialized peoples. The onus is often put on the individual to tend to their own-well-being while rarely acknowledging how racism can impact employee mental health and wellness.
