I have the pleasure of collaborating on this regular post with my one of my dearest friends. Christine and I were both extremely fortunate and managed to graduate with full-time job offers. Though our workplaces are vastly different (she works at an esteemed law firm in DC, and I’m at a tech company) we share one important common experience: We’re both young women of color working in traditionally white male-dominated fields.
And we think that’s pretty cool, don’t you?
So with a dedication to an intersectional lens on career advice from the female perspective, and in the spirit of our Friday night check-in calls, Christine and I bring to you Work It. We hope that as we learn more about the world of work, we can share our growing store of wisdom with you.
We are also mindful that both Christine and I are cishet women. If you have a queer female-identifying lens on navigating careers, please contact me, and we can talk about sharing your ideas.
Thanks for being here. Let’s strive hard, embrace uncertainty, and remember that inspiration comes in unexpected packages.
