Abstract (summary)

Interpersonal mistreatment at the workplace is an issue that is talked about a lot and has caught the attention of many researchers over time. But another issue that often goes unnoticed is the mistreatment of visible minorities, especially Black Women, in the work-place. Even fewer studies explore the connection between mistreatment and its effects on mental health. This project investigates black women’s work experiences in Canada with a particular focus on their experiences of interpersonal mistreatment at work. Interpersonal mistreatment at the workplace is an ongoing research area where scholars continue to explore the antecedents and outcomes of mistreatment at work. In this study, I share my experience on conducting research to explore if Black women experience interpersonal mistreatment in Canada. I present my experience in a narrative form, from conducting literature reviews, contacting participants, to transcribing interviews. I will express my views on the matter as a black woman and an undergraduate student in Canada.
