Despite the civil unrest in the country, or possibly because of it, professionals still need to design, build, and nurture their careers.
How are you doing?
The more things change, the more they stay the same. We are not in unchartered territory. The events over the last 7 days in 2020 are eerily familiar. Without looking at the calendar, the murder, abuse, oppression, and gaslighting we see could be mistaken for taking place in 1920 or 1960. The real difference is the mobile phone camera footage and social media. Hear me well, it’s OK not to be OK as we experience this collective grief and trauma. Also know that we each can play a role in effecting change and the role we play should be one that honors who we are. You can protest, volunteer to feed and care for protestors, donate money or supplies, offer pro bono services, create a resource list, and the list goes on and on. Don’t be shamed into engaging in a way that doesn’t resonate with you.
In addition to those protesting on the front lines, there are those who instituted “calling out Black” benefits at their places of employment, those who participated in #BlackOutTuesday on yesterday, and those who sat in silence or put on a happy face while their nonBlack colleagues went on with business as usual. Where you work and who you work with can have the same impact on your life, health and wellness as salary and the kind of work that you perform.
I am a natural teacher and resource sharer. These traits are as much a part of my makeup as they are a part of my gifts. I am a Black women CEO in the leadership consulting and career coaching industries. Carrying the heaviness of the weight of being a Black woman in America, I understand more each day how I am called to lead and serve. My work is important. Sometimes I have needed to disconnect and other days I work with the energy and commitment of my ancestors. I am most successful when I honor my history and authenticity. I believe the same is true for you and I want to help you on your journey.
