However, was I out of line by defending myself with my omitted email attached to the assignment so it could be handed off?

I’m on a very small CX team. Recently our Leader was transitioned out of the team and executive leaders started changing their titles to include that of our team.

They won’t lay us off for headcount on an acquisition situation but appear to be creating a separate team.

I love my job and the people I work with, but there’s one thing that really bothers me: the lack of diversity. Sometimes when I walk into the office and see everyone else around me as the only POC, it feels kind of weird. I don’t think anyone here has ever said anything racist or sexist to me personally, but I don’t feel comfortable talking about these issues with anyone because they might take it personally and then things could get awkward between us.

For those who are struggling during the holiday season: I finally had the courage to talk to my doctor about my depression and drinking problems. I don't know why I waited so long. Started crying in the first 5 minutes and felt immensely better after the session. There is no shame in looking for help. We can still be successful and strong and self-sufficient. Hang in there!
