While there is a general need for our workforce to address gender biases that negatively impact the advancement of women, there are challenges that uniquely impact Black women and women of color in the workplace. As a result, we must address both gender and racial bias when working to create access and opportunities that allow Black women and women of color to thrive. We will have an opportunity to converse with women who are thriving in their careers and want to share the do’s and don’ts of advancing Black women and women of color in the workplace and beyond. During the moderated Q&A we will discuss:

-Systemic and cultural barriers that inhibit progress
-Policies and practices that have supported Black women and women of color in their career
-Tips for both employers and employees on centering the advancement of Black women and women of color

Guest Speakers:
-Cristina Costa, Learning and Development Program Manager, Outco | Chief Marketing Officer and Career Coach, Women With Purpose
-Farrah Belizaire, Associate Director of Diversity and Inclusion, Boston University School of Medicine | Founder and Managing Director, LiteWork Events
-Louvre Walker-Hannon, Senior Application Engineer, MathWorks
