I just finished reading A Blessing: Women of Color Teaming Up to LEAD, EMPOWER, AND THRIVE. This book written by Bonita C. Stewart and Jacqueline Adams is amazing.
I picked it up after attending the Transform Her 2021 meetup hosted on LinkedIn. It took me a little while to open this book. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I regret not opening it sooner.
This team has paired data and analytics with life experiences to encourage and empower black women in their quest for leadership roles. They include their own professional and personal experiences or – shall I say journeys – along the way in such a way that I stayed light-hearted and confident throughout the read.
The book also inspires and includes our allies.
I’m most excited to have stumbled upon this representation, for once, without having to search for it. I cannot stress enough how incredibly inspiring this book is.
I highly recommend folks give it a read. It really, and truly, is – A Blessing.
There’s not even a disguise.
