Well done story, Terrie! Totally connected with me. I’m impressed you didn’t punch the guy in the belly (but I sense you’re not a violent person). Great snapshot of what it was like for you going up through the ranks in a large company; seems to me it would be a worthwhile read for anyone Black, female, a manager, or in IT (we have any number of people who can check one or more of those boxes hanging around Medium).
