Many of us wear a mask when we head into the office, especially if we’re in the minority. But it takes a lot of energy to maintain the masquerade day in and day out and it can be easy to lose yourself to the false image you’ve created. Let’s have a conversation on how we can be our authentic selves every single day.

You’ll walk away from this conversation with:

  • Our personal tips on maintaining your identity in the workplace as a minority
  • Strategies for self-care when you’re feeling depleted
  • An understanding of what it means to be authentic for us and how that may apply to you
