Day 14 of #29LoveLettersToBlackWomen: Ericka Hines

On this day that we are celebrating love, I want to give flowers to Ericka Hines, the writer of The Black Women Thriving report and founder of Every Level Leadership.

When I read Ericka's research report about Black women at work and what companies can do to ensure Black women thrive, it felt like it was one big love letter to Black women. This report does such a wonderful job of both telling the stories of our current reality and the harm it causes AND painting a picture of what could be different at work.

The report calls on organizations and leaders to de-bias performance management and promotion process, provide more developmental access for Black women, and to unlearn harmful stereotypes that are the source of many of the micro-aggressions and discrimination Black women experience at work, among other recommendations. Ericka gives voice to the desire of transforming our workplaces where we can truly thrive. "Our lives outside the workplace are full of meaning, community, and joy. That is where we experience thriving. We deserve the same at work. Everyone does." I agree wholeheartedly.

This #BlackHistoryMonth, I'm celebrating 29 Black women who have influenced me through the ways they pursue their own liberation. Black women's work is often unrecognized and not cited, and this month I'm determined to pass out a few flowers to Black women. #Day14 #29LoveLettersToBlackWomen #GiveBlackWomenTheirFlowers
