Why pronouncing names is important for workplace culture

We work best when we feel comfortable and respected. Microaggressions and when an ethnically or racially distinct name is continually and purposefully mispronounced, it can become a source of workplace stress, which can lead to burnout, health implications, and stalled career growth. Proper pronunciation = a sense of belonging. Being a good ally means we should learn names and cultures to make people feel welcome.
