Microaggressions, bullying, harassment, sexual harassment, and discrimination continue to be experienced by orthopaedic physicians in the workplace. Oftentimes, these behaviors go unreported because of fear of retaliation, and many perpetrators are not held accountable. This article provides examples of stories anonymously submitted to #SpeakUpOrtho on the topics of microaggressions, bullying/harassment, sexual harassment, discrimination, and retaliation by orthopaedic surgery residents, fellows, and attending surgeons. Commentary by experts in the field is also included to provide ways to manage and prevent the perpetuation of these behaviors.
