Leadership Fundamentals for Black Women
In so many different ways, Black women have a harder and worse experience than almost everyone else in the workplace. They’re often the only Black woman in the room and experience a greater variety of microaggressions than women of other races and ethnicities. This playlist helps unpack some of the most common biases Black women face at work, along with research-backed, actionable steps you can take to combat them. Start a Lean In Circle and bring together a group of women to work through the topics in this playlist together and practice what you learn. Each video is accompanied by a guide specific to the experiences of Black women for you to unpack with your Circle — your very own team of career coaches.
Leaders who demonstrate empathy for their employees create happier and more productive teams. And those leaders are more likely to be women. In this video, we explore the essential elements of “transformational leadership” and offer practical advice on how to develop your leadership skills. We discuss how transformational leaders build trust, motivate teams, and empower employees to reach their full potential.
Each playlist is 7-to-9 months of curated content for women with shared experiences, career stages, or skill-building goals. We provide a kickoff guide to set the stage for your first Circle meeting, custom discussion guides for each video, and a Looking Back and Next Steps Guide after you complete the playlist (which is coming soon).
