WLA Concrete Ceiling: "Challenges Women of Color Face in the Workplace":

For decades people have discussed the realities of the ‘Glass Ceiling,’ the unseen yet unbreakable barrier that prevents women as a group from moving up the corporate hierarchy. The ‘Concrete Ceiling,’ is an even more formidable barrier that women of color face in the workplace. While we are aware more women are rising to the top as compared to decades past, the reality is that women are not advancing as a whole, by virtue of being women. This is even more so the case for women of color as evidenced by racism, lack of mentorship, lack of role models, exclusion from informal networks of key colleagues, and lack of opportunity to showcase breadth of skills/experience. While there is ample data focusing on the challenges women face in the workforce, there is glaringly limited discussion as it relates to challenges women of color face.

The WLA presentation will “show the true colors” of several women of color in our community. As leaders in their industry, the speakers will share personal instances when they’ve hit the Concrete Ceiling and what they did to challenge or overcome them. Attendees will learn how to recognize with discrimination based on color or gender, identify and cope with micro-aggressions in the workplace and seek professional support and mentorship.

Reservations are being taken on line at www.dcrcoc.org and by phone by calling Chelsea at 454-1700 x 1000.
