Tiffany Alvoid is an attorney and an international speaker. In December 2019, Tiffany gave a TEDx Talk about microaggressions in the workplace. She earned a JD from UCLA School of Law with a concentration in Critical Race Theory. Tiffany created a training about addressing microaggressions in the workplace in an effort to create awareness about how destructive microaggressions can be in the workplace. Tiffany’s training focuses on the historical context that makes certain phrases offensive in an effort to help participants understand the unique perspective of marginalized groups.
One of my favorite lawyers, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said, ‘Women belong in all places where decisions are being made. … It shouldn’t be that women are the exception.’ The legal profession is and will continue to be a powerful position because the law is the foundation of so many decisions that impact women’s lives. The recent Dobbs decision by the U.S. Supreme Court is an excellent example of legal decisions that impact women’s lives. Women receiving equal opportunities in the legal profession allows women to have access to powerful places where decisions are being made. Thereby increasing our ability to have power over our own lives.
