Some Black women say remote work has reduced workplace microaggressions and eased the pressure to conform to white expectations of professionalism

Post—creating a version of office life that better suits them.“My co-workers are my best friends because I had the freedom to choose,” 29-year-old Mary Smith, a project manager based in Texas, told thePostof the women in her pod.The importance of these alternative work spaces became especially clear last summer, when the police killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor spurred protests across the country. Instead of trying to bottle up emotions to get through the workday, women said they could lean extra hard on their coworking communities, knowing that someone would be able to understand what they were going through.
“When Philando Castile died, I didn’t take off work, and the hurt that I felt … I just felt like these people don’t care,” Funke Adeniji, a 28-year-old based in Maryland, told thePost. Whereas last year she found: “I can speak with my community by myself. I’m able to talk about this tragedy online without having to actually walk into work and see that no one cares about it. headtopics.comRead more: Jezebel »
