America is more diverse than ever before, but, disturbingly, black professionals still face discrimination, bias, and hostility in the workplace.
S. K. Chapman has spent years in corporate America and has many stories to share. Some of the stories shared by Chapman will make you laugh out loud, some will make you seethe with anger, but all will make you think. In the beginning of Black Threatening Invisible: My Journey In Corporate America, Chapman recalls a conversation in which a friend expressed concern about his boss’s apathetic attitude toward his professional development. Chapman understood his friend’s frustrations well; as a black professional, Chapman has experienced the entire spectrum of bias and disparate treatment in the workplace.
Some of the situations Chapman describes would be humorous on their own, but the absurdities that minorities in the workplace face quickly accumulate and become overwhelming, revealing deep-seated and unsettling patterns.
Black Threatening Invisible contains insights for people on every step of the career ladder. Whether you are a recent graduate encountering workplace bias and hostility for the first time, a manager examining the microaggressions exhibited by your employees, or an HR professional wanting to increase the hiring and retention of black talent, S. K. Chapman has valuable wisdom that will benefit you.
