Dear My Sister-Friend
In order for women of color, such as yourself, to achieve their biggest and boldest aspirations, they will need to be equipped with actionable strategies that take into account their unique challenges and opportunities to gain the clarity, confidence and courage needed to advocate for their vision, voice and value in the workplace and marketplace. Otherwise, their strengths, talents, knowledge, and skills will remain a reservoir of untapped potential.
Since you will spend over half of your waking hours in the workplace as an employee or business owner, you want opportunities that allow you to discover how much you can do, how far you can reach, and how far you can stretch into realizing more of your potential. Right?
Many of the challenges faced by women of color in the workplace, especially Black women, have been noted in the research conducted by LeanIn.Org & McKinsey & Company during the past four years. These challenges in the workplace include:
Women in corporate workplaces, Black women, in particular, deal with a greater variety of microaggressions and are more likely than other women to have their judgment questioned in their area of expertise and be asked to provide additional evidence of their competence.
Women of color generally receive less support from managers - and Black women receive the least support.
Women of color rarely interact with senior leaders and key decision makers which makes it difficult to gain the sponsorship most often needed for promotions and advancement in corporate environments.
Black women are opening businesses at a higher percentage than any group in the US according to the Black Women Business Startups report by The Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, yet their sales receipts are the lowest of any group. The research found that black women startup business owners are most challenged with the following:
Lack of general business knowledge
Lack of financing and resources
Understanding how to effectively identify and market to key markets
Fear and lack of confidence
In the face of these daunting odds, I believe and know that if you are equipped with actionable strategies that address how you show up to navigate these and other challenges in the workplace and marketplace, it is possible for you to achieve great success. Why am I so optimistic about your ability to make this happen?
Because, for over 20 years, I was able to defy the odds as a woman of color to go from the humble beginnings of earning minimum wage working for Marriott Hotels to become an executive leader of high-performance teams and several successful million dollar businesses during my award-winning career in the hospitality industry. If I can do it, so can you.
As a former charter member of the Courtyard by Marriott Mid-Atlantic Diversity and Inclusion Committee, I know first hand the impact an inclusive and diverse workplace culture, quality leadership training, sponsors and the development of an entrepreneurial mindset can have on the progress and success of high potential and growth-minded women of color, at all levels, in corporate America, and in the marketplace.
Today as the founder and CEO of Slay Your Greatness Academy and The Leadership Table for Women of Color Network, my work involves supporting ambitious, growth-minded individuals, leaders, and teams as a leadership performance consultant, leadership trainer, speaker and author.
