I’m on a 10-day solo retreat in the middle of nowhere. I’m reading The Autobiography of Malcom X. I’m not sure how I’m going to make it back to work, y’all. The pandemic has allowed me to “be” without the gaze of whiteness. I’m tempted to walk away from the Corporate world and all that comes with it. I don’t find it validating and it feels like the hamster wheel of meaninglessness. Am I alone? How do you deal? Do you have an exit plan/strategy?

I’m in the opposite position. I’m in PE and the last year has been nothing but white male faces all day everyday on Zoom (I’m F). I’m so over it and hearing the bs excuses as to why their teams are damn near all male and white. Right now I’m interviewing for roles in VC where I can have greater impact on female and minority founders. This PE life ain’t it for me. 😑
