For years now, women have been making history in innovative ways. One of the biggest ways we create legacies is by starting our own businesses. Over recent years the number of women owned businesses have been skyrocketing, especially amongst Black women. While I am so in awe and proud of our ingenuity, I often worry about how much capitalism leads our businesses to become our identity.  It’s no secret that when you’re an entrepreneur, you do not have the set business hours of a 9-5.  There’s always something to be done, an idea to jot down, a person to meet with, a bill to pay.

Since graduating with her Master’s from the School of the Art Institute, she’s worked both in communities, schools, and hospitals to provide clinical services to people of all ages.

Negotiating While Black: Empowering The Voice In The Workplace
Therapy For Black Girls Blog
by Dara Winley, PhD
3w ago
It’s been reported that those who chose not to negotiate do so for multiple factors, including a lack of confidence, avoiding uncomfortable conversations, not knowing how, or feeling satisfied with the original offer (Adelman-Elavsky & Cullen, 2020).  While women in general are likely to be paid lower salaries, the pay gap is even larger for Black women – “earning 63 cents for every dollar earned by White men” (Miller, 2020). The gender and racial gap of salary has significant impacts on emotional and mental well-being and due to historical legacies of enslavement, Black women can suf ..read more

One consequence of the pandemic was that it forced us to take inventory of all of the things in our life that we may be unsatisfied with, and for many of us, career is at the top of that list.

What Kind of Support Do You Need from Your Leaders to Feel Supported at Work?

Black women climbing the corporate ladder face an uphill battle. The way Black women talk, act, smile, or lack thereof, is all viewed under a microscope. Why, you might ask? Racism, sexism, bias, and the list goes on. Most, if not all, Black women face some type of bias at work. Additionally, Black women in leadership roles face a unique set of prejudices. Their ability to fulfill their role is constantly questioned by their superiors and subordinates. They are often treated like the help, excluded, or deemed the voice for all Black people at the organization. Dr. Antoinette Candia-Bailey serv ..read more
