If there is one thing that I have learnt in my professional journey, it is that not every toxic work environment is fixable.
I have had to walk away in some instances, not because I am a quitter, but because I had done all that I could to fix things and was realistic enough to realise that people were not willing to change their attitudes or behaviour.
I am especially reflecting on this considering #blacklivesmatter and how it has rightfully taken the world by storm.
One thing that is certain is that most of our environments need fixing and need to be inclusive.
Some people are open to learning and some are not. Let us do our absolute best to create the world we desire and let us also keep in mind that sometimes the only way to protect yourself (and others) is by courageously cutting people off and walking away.
