Synopsis

Black women are the highest educated group of employees in the workforce, but continue to earn $.67 for every dollar a white man earns and none hold the coveted position of CEO on the Fortune 500 list. If they are doing all of the right things based on what they are told is required to earn career success, why are they being left behind?

In Working While Black, Dr. Tana Sessions explains that many of the unfortunate disadvantages faced by black women are actually the reasons why black women are the largest and fastest-growing group of entrepreneurs. They are opting out of a system that was not built for them to succeed. Her candid stories of black women in this book from multiple backgrounds and industries give a behind-the-curtain view of what typically happens to black women along their corporate career track to experience such events and provides strategies for what it takes to Stop Being the Best Kept Secret(R) under the prescriptive captions of Own Your Power, Own Your Truth, Own Your Healing, Own Your Worth and Own Your Destiny.

Readers will gain innovative tools to help avoid corporate landmines while gaining sponsors and allies along the way. Dr. Tana Sessions experienced these landmines. She felt like she was the only one and often felt very alone. Through sharing these experiences with close friends and family, and becoming a performance coach for black women, she learned that their stories were also her story, and has gained the advocacy of other influential and successful women to do the same and trust that with telling their stories for others to learn from as they grow in their careers and businesses, they too, can make a difference for black women's lives and careers.

    Hello Dr. Session: I am looking forward to supporting and reading your book. I have a parallel book coming out titled "The Invisible Black Nurse" that chronicles my story of navigating the complexities of racism within the nursing profession. The intent is to bring awareness of the health consequences of enduring day to day isms from our peers. I look forward to reading your experiences. Like you the book is geared for the Black nurse specifically, but all nurses can learn from these experiences.
