Advice from the Top: What Minority Women Say about Their Career Success
To gain the invaluable insights in Advice from the Top: What Minority Women Say about Their Career Success, Valencia Campbell reviewed research on career success, then interviewed 14 extraordinary minority women, each of whom shared stories about the path(s) to the top of her field. But this book goes beyond the usual superficial profiles of women achievers. Rather, it shares their views on what constitutes success, the factors they consider important to their success, and the obstacles they encountered and overcame.| |The book also provides concrete action steps designed to help readers vault the hurdles encountered by the women profiled, and to do so with aplomb. And it offers insider advice on how to overcome bias to reach goals. Perhaps most important, Advice from the Top will inspire minority women who want to advance their careers, leaving a lasting legacy for all those who care about improving the status of women in our society.
