Their professional rights are undermined and their voice is suppressed and are threatened to be fired if they register a complain. The females from different ethnicity are considered to be weaker as the clichés concept of majority is the authority still is significant in the minds of many.

Held back from higher offices
Females in general are not given the opportunity to sit in a higher managing office but the females belonging from different ethnic group are not ever considered suitable for higher positions. Their talent is greatly undermined and are put into neglect. However other peers are usually preferred for promotion and no matter how hard they work.
What can we do?
The mapping of an organization should be clear under which different offices should be given to individuals capable of holding a higher office with relevant experience irrespective of the class, gender and race.
Language and communication
In a culturally diversified office the issue of communication gap always persists , the problem creates difficulties for conveying messages or thought from one to another. Language trainings should be given for the non native speakers.
In general to oust the concept of discrimination and racism there should be awareness sessions and employers need to prevent gender discrimination and maintain equality in terms of hiring salary, opportunities and promotions
