The workplace is a crossroads of filtering identities where negotiations of the self and displays of authenticity are regularly calibrated to conform to professionalism norms. The boundaries of what professionalism looks and sounds like are set by historically dominant groups. This has created segregated communities and work spaces in which people of color are often excluded via structural systems and social norms.
