Helping Women of Color Shatter the Glass Ceiling
In honor of Vice President-elect Kamala Harris becoming the highest-ranking woman ever elected in U.S. history, we talk with music industry matriarch Sophia Chang about how we can help women of color ascend in every industry: from music, film, and television to technology, medicine, law, and of course, politics. Sophia talks about the importance of mentorship, and why she created Unlock Her Potential, a free mentorship program for women of color in the United States. “You should have women of color in the room, not because it's the right thing to do, which it is. It is also the smart, fiscally responsible thing to do.” Plus, Sophia walks you through her top confidence-building exercise that’ll have you convinced that you, too, are the baddest b*tch in the room. You can follow Sophia Chang on Twitter @sophchang and on Instagram and Facebook @sophchangnyc. Interested in learning more about Sophia Chang?
