Werqplace Violence

Episode 63

Acclimatizing to workplace culture can already be a tricky thing to navigate. That’s especially true in corporate culture. The whole crew attended an LGBTQIA+ event that Zach put together. The panel brought folks together sharing different experiences as far as their ability to self express at work. This had us thinking about what it’s like being QTPOC at corporate gigs.

“Tone it down.” “Everything doesn’t have to be about sexuality.” Binarist dress codes. These are just a few of the ways that we can be limited in the workplace. Where do these rules and microaggressions come from? What’s possible when we can stop worrying about whether that nail polish is appropriate for work? What can happen when we can truly WERQ the workplace?
