There’s always been that age-old stereotype that women of color don’t support one another and that many in power positions see peers as a threat. But this is not always the norm. Many female leaders create a strong sister support system that helps them navigate often unequal and challenging waters in the business world.
Star Jones, a Black Enterprise Women of Power Summit alumna, has built a tremendously successful career in the legal, entertainment and publishing industries, and she has attested to the power of women supporting one another in the advancement of their careers and lives. The current spokesperson for the National Association of Professional Women has her own circle of awesome women who have all supported one another in making major boss moves, from her books to her TV shows to her personal life.
Take a look as Jones shares the power of sisterhood and how supporting one another helps push us all to well-deserved heights:
