What a Black person thinks when they read this blog

Note from Penelope: This is a guest post of sorts. I also thought this would be a way to share with you how much I learn from conversations I have had with Whitney leading up to this her commentary on this post. . Note from Whitney: I am an Ivy-League educated, millennial, cis, straight Black woman. That is the point-of-view from which I analyze and critique your writing, and someone with a more complex intersectional identity might have even more nuanced thoughts to offer.

Sending work emails during a tragedy. I’m in Boston, but many of my colleagues work out of our Boston office. Can you think of a good way to handle work emails today?

Ask a Manager

I have a question about etiquette and how to approach a subject with people at work. We work in a nonprofit where all salaries are low. Even though there’s a ban on space heaters, two of my coworkers keep one in their offices and are the only people comfortable during the work day. I had a second interview (internal candidate in academia) with the director I would be supporting and reporting to. He told me all about the company and the project managers who work there.
