I work almost exclusively with leaders who are women of color, and this message is for you.
Unlike a lot of women of color, I got quite lucky. I never knew I was different until I was eleven and even after that time I never really experienced racism.
It shaped me to feel that there was nothing I couldn’t do, all the way up to holding the position of site administrator of one of the largest community health centers in Canada.
So, while I never felt held back, it broke my heart to see the potential being completely lost, in other women of diversity. I’ve seen how the weight of prejudice crushes the possibility of who we could be and how we have internally taken that weight on.
Today the focus of my work is guiding and inspiring women of diversity to truly be in their power as leaders.
What I want to share with you is one simple yet profound truth I have found.
Your power comes from knowing who you are. The cost of not owning who you really are is not living a full life and feeling cut off from your true self. The gift of this is that when you truly own who you are from the depths of gender and culture you came from you are being more honest, more real and people trust you. More importantly you trust yourself.
Power emerges when a woman embraces herself, her culture and makes it a part of her leadership. Having worked with female leaders from front line analysts to C-Suite, I’m here to tell you that you can own your power and you CAN prosper.
For all women of color I want you to know that I am here for you, you’re not alone and you can do this.
