It's a major issue in the workplace: Getting interrupted, talked over and ignored in meetings happens to everyone — but more often to gender minorities, people of color and more junior employees.

One tip to stop this: Make sure you're amplifying one another's ideas.

Here's how it works:

  1. One person makes a point in a meeting.
  2. Immediately, another person repeats the idea and commends it.

MICHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Meetings - love them or hate them, when it comes to the workplace, they're really important. It's where new ideas are born but also where politics and power dynamics play out. And if you're low in the pecking order, meetings can be a place where you are interrupted, ignored or otherwise made to feel disrespected. Research has found that this happens more for certain groups - women, people of color and LGBTQ and nonbinary workers. Stacey Vanek Smith researched this question for her new book, "Machiavelli For Women." She did this report for NPR's Life Kit.

A new online game lets you experience the supply chain crunch for yourself. The Beergame App simulates the steps of selling beer - from brewer to drinker.

Getting interrupted. Getting ideas stolen. Being talked over and ignored in meetings. This happens to women, people of color and marginalized workers a LOT.

There's an annual debate in the U.S. over the song of the summer. The consensus this year seemed to be "Butter" by Korean pop group BTS, or at least it was, until "Butter" was replaced by "Permission To Dance," also by BTS. Stacey Vanek Smith, host of our podcast, The Indicator From Planet Money, looked into the band that has become a global economic force, creating jobs, billions in revenue, even moving the needle on South Korea's GDP.
