As high-achieving women of color, we know what it feels like to walk into a room and be the only one who looked like you. To be asked your opinion on a project that lacks diversity and inclusion. To frequently be asked to participate in conversations where the expectation is that your opinion speaks for all voices from your community. And not be able to talk about specific topics that are important to your culture because no one around you can relate from personal experience.

This is true for our guest today, my coaching client Karen Livingstone. After accepting a promotion to a high-level executive position and being the only person of color on the team, she decided to seek out coaching specifically for her career.

Listen in to learn how this decision has amplified her confidence, self-trust, positive mindset, and internal safety.
