Did you know that our CEO, Minda Harts, has a podcast? It's called Secure The Seat, and is in its second season. Secure the Seat is about women of color in the workplace — what does it take to secure a seat at the table, and once you do, how can you bring others along with you?
In addition to the resources here at The Memo, here's one more resource for your career toolkit. Each week, Minda interviews a different woman who is successfully navigating the workplace. Each guest comes with a unique story and perspective, but they all share a common thread. The podcast discusses life and career, and the guests are candid in sharing their journeys -- both the successes and the failures along the way. Women of color have a different experience at work than our peers, and the episodes get to the heart of that.
And there are rap lyrics in every episode!
