    [REPLAY] Resiliency & EQ

    As Black and Brown women embarking on our corporate journeys, we're often told to keep our heads down and work twice as hard as everyone else to get ahead.
    I used to think the same thing - until I looked up and realized that people around me were getting promoted, and I was still stuck in place.
    I had to learn the hard way that there's WAY MORE to getting promoted than just what you know.
    Listen in to this episode as I share how one supports the other and are key for Black and Brown women in the workplace.

    How to Deal with a Boss You Don't Like, Or Doesn't Like You

    Woman of color, the job of your dreams is waiting on the other side of you showing up and shining! 🌟🌟🌟
    And this doesn't include doing the barest minimum as required at work. You're going to have to step up, take the lead on projects, and be someone that can be trusted by your coworkers to be excellent. 
    I would love to see more of this being the norm than the exception in every workplace and that begins with more conversations, resources, and support becoming more accessible to all women of color. 
    So listen in to this episode now!

    Want to be a True Ally? Here's How

    Want to be a True Ally? Here's How

    For Black and Brown women, our underrepresentation in corporate boardrooms makes it harder for us to advance in our careers, because so often we’re not the ones in the rooms where decisions are getting made.

     
    However, this is exactly why allyship is so important.

     
    Allies— in this case I mean white men, white women, and other people in positions of authority— can use their privilege to reach back and help close that massive gap between the decision-makers and the rest of the world.

     
    As we fight for racial and gender equity, allies have an important part to play.
     
    Listen in as I share my thoughts on what true allyship looks like and how to show up as one.
