Question of the day.... How many of my sisters feel empowered in the workplace? How many of you feel that you are valued and given the same opportunities to succeed as your peers?

I have been fortunate to be one of very few minority females in my industry/solution and for me that has been beneficial since the firm works hard to retain me by allowing me to pursue what interests me.

I don’t feel very empowered at my workplace. Inclusion here is definitely not valued and I experience a lot of racism (covertly and overtly) It’s hard for me to advocate for myself. I’m consistently given feedback that I’m “doing well” but never anything actionable. I feel like I don’t have the same opportunities as others

I’ve been reaching out to more black women at work to discuss and relate my experience! Which has been helpful (we’re all struggling at my company it seems). I’ve also attempted to advocate and explain my feelings to managers (with no success but at least I’m putting it out there).

I've been fortunate to be empowered at most places I've worked and given many opportunities to lead challenging work. I have also worked at a hand full of places where it was obvious I was hired to be a worker bee and help win contracts because I look great on paper. I recognized what was up and moved accordingly.

Hey ladies! My mom’s turning 60 next month and I still have absolutely no idea what to do. She works so hard never really celebrates her birthdays, so I was looking forward to doing something huge this year but then Rona happened. Looking to do something socially distanced but still fun. Any ideas at all will be appreciated. Thank you in advance!!

Need advice. Grew up in a very conservative culture where people usually only marry once and make it work. I was in an ugly relationship prior to marriage , it was still extremely hard to break up. I am well educated , good looking and very responsible and ended up in a relationship with an illegal bum because I was extremely lonely. He was horrible to live with and even cheated on me but I still couldn’t leave him for years..... continued ..

Reviews on #TheRachelDivide ? Ambivalence is all I got...

I’m fairly new in the corporate world (approaching 25) and I feel like I’m burning out already. I don’t *hate* my job but I don’t exactly love it either. I’m often told I’m ungrateful for not appreciating my “good job” but I don’t feel fulfilled, I don’t feel confident in my potential to grow into the roles I actually want/know I could succeed in, and when I try to apply to those role outside of the company, I’m usually shot down due to lack of experience on paper. Any advice?
