For some of us our workplace is an evolutionary space; a test space to learn what it is we truly desire to truly do. As women of color, many of us have recognized we have to do things differently. We have our jobs, the day-to-day work we do for a clinic, hospital, or organization that earn us a paycheck. But, we’re also out in the community doing healthcare justice work that really matters to us: spreading community health education, creating health programs, launching health fairs, building advocacy and creating partnerships, etc. And, spreading ourselves so thin — while holding a full-time job —-  can be exhausting.

That’s why this episode of the Melanin & Medicine podcast allows you to examine if your current career is limiting or lifting your impact in the healthcare space. 

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  • How to compensate for your time as a health justice professional
  • How to identify the work that your community most needs from you
  • How to create change in your career to focus your time on the work you find most important and extraordinary to you
  • How to stop limiting your impact and allow yourself to show up in your highest power

…and much more!

Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on empowering Black, LatinX, and Indigenous women in medicine to create sustainable health equity initiatives, opportunities, and entrepreneurships that get funded.
