The ethics of authenticity

Wednesday 17 January, 2024

My workplace encourages us to bring our whole selves to work and has authenticity as one of its values, but this doesn't feel like it rings true.

Last year the firm publicly supported the Voice to Parliament without staff consultation. Recently I posted my thoughts on the Middle East conflict on LinkedIn and was quickly asked to take it down and told I should have consulted with them first. It seems authenticity has a limit.

How do I reconcile this?
