Minda Harts is the CEO of The Memo LLC and the award-winning and best-selling author of “The Memo: What Women of Color Need to Know to Secure a Seat at the Table.” In 2020, Minda was named the #1 Top Voice for Equity in the Workplace by Linkedin. She’s been featured on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Fast Company, The NY Times, and Time Magazine, to name a few. Minda also speaks on topics like managing diverse teams, courageous leadership, and advancing women of color in the workplace.

During this episode, you will hear Minda talk about:

  • How her own experience with job-related trauma and racism inspired her to write a career book for women of color -- despite being told that there was no market for a book on this topic
  • Some of the less-examined causes of “imposter syndrome” at work
  • How to build your network in a hybrid workplace or fully remote workplace
  • Why Minda uses the term “success partner” instead of ally -- and how managers and coworkers can be success partners for women of color at work
  • What inspired the topics for her next two books: “Right Within: How to Heal from Racial Trauma in the Workplace” and “You Are More Than Magic: The Black and Brown Girls' Guide to Finding Your Voice”

If you want to connect with Minda, you can find her on her official website,, and follow her on LinkedIn.
