228: Managing Toxic Work Environments in Higher Education with Briana Muñoz Flores
In today’s episode, Briana Muñoz Flores shares her insights on managing toxic work environments.
Briana is a 4th generation Latina born and raised in Central California. She has a bachelor’s in Ethnomusicology and Afro-American Studies from UCLA and a Masters in Higher Education from USC. She’s worked in family businesses since she was young and spent most of her professional career working in universities. When not helping graduate students succeed, she likes to listen to audiobooks while walking her rescue dog, Niles, singing along to musicals and binge-watching K-dramas.
On the show, Briana identifies common signs of a toxic work environment, which include not trusting your intuition/gut feeling that something is wrong, things feeling unethical, and being used as a scapegoat. She also addresses the added challenges for Latinas and people of color in predominantly white work environments. And she dives into sharing strategies for managing toxic environments, including setting boundaries, having a support network, and creating an exit strategy. Listen to this episode if you can relate or want to do your part to not create or replicate toxic work environments.
