Recently I LIVED streamed a video session on Periscope. I shared information on organizational development. Just as I was breaking down the best tips and strategies and how to avoid costly mistakes, a young man typed in the chat:
“How you gonna try and be professional when your chest is showing.” To which I let him know I wasn’t TRYING to be anyone other than who I am. He responded with “ “Your chest is distracting me.” To men/ people like this young man, here’s what I say:
How about we stop making being professional about dressing a part, playing a role or behaving in ways that fit within the politics of respectability?
How about we make professionalism about skill mastery, authenticity and style.
How about we stop asking people to be different so that we feel comfortable?
