Emotional Tax

Learn what Emotional Tax is and how it affects both employees of color and organizations. Our Catalyst research has uncovered the reality that Asian, Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and multiracial employees pay an Emotional Tax at work when they feel they must be on guard to protect against bias. These harmful experiences occur both inside and outside the workplace and prevent employees from being able to truly thrive at work.
