Look around. Imagine being the only one, the only woman of color, the sole "sister" in any business setting. Then imagine all of these sole sisters teaming up as a collective, full of resilience and pioneering spirit, eager to share our glory with the next generations. A blessing is a group of unicorns and we are Black Unicorns.The book, ?A Blessing,? will serve as a mission-driven, yet realistic analysis of African American female leadership. Armed with data from our original survey of 4005 women knowledge workers across four generations (GenZ, Millennials, GenX and Boomers) and four races (Black, LatinX, Asian and white), ?Women of Color in Business: Cross Generational Surveyİ, we will serve two main objectives:1. To provide inspiration for today's "unicorns," upwardly mobile women of color in white-collar jobs across a wide variety of industries as well as entrepreneurs and to provide information for HR professionals and managers tasked with attracting and retaining employees of color; and2. To offer a "playbook" to help these women "team up" - i.e. to find innovative ways to support one another as they climb what our and other research show are lonely, stressful, jagged yet ultimately rewarding ladders of opportunity for themselves personally and their organizations.The authors focus on grit and family, the economic benefits and personal stresses of diversity, the influence of white, male mentors. And they will relate their own experiences as "unicorns," the first African-American Harvard Business School MBAs to reach the top of their respective fields -- technology (first African American woman vice president at Google) and media (first female African-American White House Correspondent for CBS News).
