Everyone Benefits when Women of Color Feel Belonging at Work with Dr. Christine Coleman

Episode 57

It’s March and Women’s History Month, so what better way to celebrate than to speak with someone who leads an organization dedicated to helping women overcome societal barriers by providing educational and empowering experiences that promote sisterhood and community. Sol Sisters, the organization we’re highlighting today believes, as I do, that all women deserve to feel safe, supported, and celebrated. And since we talk about leadership and teamwork in the workplace on the Mission First People Always Podcast, we’re going to hone in on how everyone benefits when women of color feel belonging in the workplace. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case, but we’re here to learn how to change that, so settle in for an informative and empowering conversation.
