Are you an empowered employee? Hello, everyone. My name is Janice Gilligan White, and I’m a survivor of workplace bullying. I worked in a company I believed in for over a decade and considered myself one of the lucky ones; I was an employee who found my work deeply fulfilling and I felt a strong sense of belonging.

At least, that’s what was happening to me.
