White peers can use their privilege

To white allies, Nyanue advises, “If you see someone undermining someone [in a minority group] in a meeting, have a conversation with them. If [the complaint] comes from the victim, they are seen as a stereotype…the ‘angry Black woman.’ White people in corporations have a lot of grace and leeway to do things. Advocate for people when it counts, not behind closed doors.”
