A Blessing: Women of Color Teaming Up to Lead, Empower and Thrive

Front Cover
A Blessing presents a fresh, bold analysis of African American female leadership.

A Blessing also includes the results of their original, proprietary research, Women of Color in Business: Cross Generational Survey├ which examines the views of 4005 female "desk" or "knowledge workers" across four races (Black, Latin X, Asian, and White) and four generations (Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Boomers). In addition, they interview other successful Harvard Business School alumnae who are creating or leaving legacies.--
