What is Systemic-Discrimination ?
‘Systemic Discrimination’ or ‘Institutional Discrimination’ occurs when a company has a unwarranted amount of tolerance against discrimination against the traditionally oppressed categories of individuals.
This kind of discrimintaion usually occurs daily and it might even be a part of the workspace. The individuals engaging in these discrimination activities might even be ignorant about the mental pain and agony which their victims are going through as it seems natural to them since the entire office is engaging in such activities.
Systemic discrimination hampers the ability of the victims to counter the attacks since they realize that it is rampant throughout the organization. This leads to disengaged and unmotivated employees which might lead to unnecessary attrition and ultimately, to poor performance of the company as a whole.
