My story is different because I did everything right and still could not find success in the corporate world. I realized bias and discrimination are a thing even after achieving much of what my peers could not. I was capped at a position and a salary with no where to go. My talent spoke for itself but I could not change my appearance to fool anyone I am and will always be a black woman. I geared my studies toward changing corporate environments, helping to cultivate change and bringing to the forefront the microagressive behavior everyone including myself likes to ignore. I removed barriers to entry by walking away from corporate jobs. Yet, I can’t fully walk away knowing the success of so many is hindered by company culture, unethical behavior, and lack of training. All of these things can be addressed with coaching and I hope to do that.
