One woman I spoke with, a successful entrepreneur who was interning at a tech startup before going to business school, excitedly described her most recent position where, for the first time in her career, she reported to a black woman. Statements said by a black woman in a group discussion were also least likely to be correctly attributed compared to black men, white women, and white men. Another woman passed on an opportunity for a full-time position at the Obama White House because she felt inhibited by stereotypes. And beyond the emotional and mental toll, homogeneity and bias can have real career consequences for black women. That same day a Hollywood couple had also broken up and the conversation on the text chain focused on the Hollywood gossip, never addressing the shooting. Her writing about race and intersectionality has appeared in Lenny, the Philadelphia Inquirer, and HuffPost, and she participated in the Tin House Winter Workshop for nonfiction.
