Learn about marginalization and how to identify it at work
Why are some people included and other excluded from important workplace conversations and decisions? Do the opinions of some people matter more than the opinion of others? Learn about marginalization in the next Foundations of Equity course from 10 to 11 a.m. Friday, April 7, at the Minneapolis Central Library.
Marginalization occurs when certain people or groups of people are pushed to the edge and considered of lesser importance. The needs and desires of the people within these groups are ignored at the expense of others. With marginalization of minority subgroups in the workplace, recruitment, retention and promotion suffers for those within the groups.
