It's no secret that the publishing industry has a vertical segregation problem – lots of women at the bottom, very few at the top; more BIPOC and nonbinary folks at the bottom, even fewer at the top. Though addressing systemic and institutional inequalities requires much more than actions taken by those from marginalized communities, we still have great power as individuals.
Imagine if you could:
  • bring more of your authentic self to your work;
  • gain the skills and confidence to rise to the top of the publishing industry; and,
  • feel empowered in your career and grow as a leader.

This workshop is for anyone who identifies as a woman, BIPOC, a nonbinary person, or LGBTQQIP2SAA and wants actionable, high-impact tools and strategies to empower themselves in their day-to-day — and in their overall career trajectory.

In this highly-practical workshop, you will:
  • identify the main ways in which you feel disempowered and held back in your organization or career;
  • learn key tools and strategies to tackle those obstacles; and,
  • craft an individualized accountability plan for making positive change in your career.
