Are you at a loss for how you can actively support and empower women of color to thrive in leadership?

I often look at reports showing the current numbers of people in all levels of leadership. And, regardless of the level of leadership, the industry, etc., women of color are in the lowest percentiles.

This conversation with Rebecca Muriuki explores positioning yourself for a leadership promotion as a woman of color. We discuss the challenges women of color navigate, and how we can all be part of the diversity change that we want to see in corporate leadership.

This conversation will give you practical tips to create environments for women of color to feel a sense of belonging in their current teams, while also helping them feel empowered in their career ambitions.
