You are new to an organisation and when being introduced to people, you have already been asked a few times what's your background, where are you from?
You can see that for some this is just a way to get to know you, but what they don't see is that not everyone gets asked this question. You were subjected to racial discrimination at a previous workplace, so being asked to state your cultural background is quite triggering, and you know that calling it out has the potential to make it worse and possibly put even more focus on you.
What do you do?
