Join Annahid Dashtgard in conversation with Deepa Purushothaman, about her new book “The First, the Few, the Only: How Women of Color Can Redefine Power in Corporate America“.
Since #metoo we’ve seen a societal tipping point moment in realizing the gap between gender forward policies and what happens in reality.
That gap is even wider for women of colour. According to Deepa Purushonotham’s new book “The First, the Few, the Only: How Women of Color Can Redefine Power in Corporate America“ one in three women of colour in corporate America want to quit. And yet, BIPOC women represent among the most highly trained and talented workplace demographic to attract and retain.
In conversation with Anima CEO Annahid Dashtgard, Deepa shares what propelled her research and why major media are paying attention. What will it take to move past the tired debate about meritocracy? What will it take for us to break the invisible barriers holding us back? What does a future look like where everyone, regardless of identity, has the opportunity not just to survive, but thrive.
