Women of color

Women talk about their careers much differently (and less effectively) than men do.
Women of color experience an "emotional tax" in the workplace, affecting their well-being.
When discussing issues faced by women, remember there are many types of women of color.
In the mid-1950s, Ella Fitzgerald was a rising female vocalist. Her sultry sound was new and fresh. There was just one problem: Ella could not get booked at many of the hottest nightclubs because she was black.
People still feel the need to explain why people of difference are good for organizations.
"I am the only woman of color on my team. During discussions I am sometimes asked to 'speak for all women' or all women of color. How can I address this without devaluing my insights and contributions to the team?"
NEW’s mission is to advance women, grow business and transform the retail and consumer goods industry to create a better workplace for all.
