Confronting the Issues Discussion

Societal and Workplace Advancement Barriers 

Prepared by Dr. Latisha Gathers, PSY.D a clinical psychologist, in this guide, Lean In Women of Color outlines some of the key barriers many women face but more so women of color when advancing both in the workplace and society. For example, Shari Hubert, Associate Dean of Admissions at the Georgetown University McDonough School of Business and Harvard Business School alum, says, “I believe that women of color often have an even higher hurdle to overcome in the workplace and are more invisible than their white counterparts. The challenges for women of color are subtler; however, and not always overtly discriminatory, which makes it more difficult to both identify and overcome them.”
