Upward: Leadership Lessons for Women on the Rise

Remember me sharing...
One of my favorite Podcasters, Simone E. Morris, invited me to be a part of a book of Women leaders. She’s watched me grow as a fellow Podcaster and thought I had something to contribute. As the publisher was looking to add specific voices, I reached out to several of my Sisterfriends and connected them with one who was also a previous guest of my An Intimate Conversation with Women of Color Podcast.
Well, I can now add Published Author to my Bio.

In January, I started a new role as the lead of our Women of Color Program. This program is for our High Potential/High Performing WoC. During the transition meeting I learned they added a couple of more components and it was now up to me to create and execute. Being someone who brings P.I.E. (Passion +Innovation + Execution) I was all in!

Instead of carrying out the cohort component, I created and launched WOC CONNECT instead. CONNECT allows for continuous learning and, connection + collaboration.

Two amazing things, 1. Instead of being a participant in the program, God decided my path is leading it. 2. Hello!!! Women of Color... Intimate Conversation. Could it be more divine?!
