Companies say they understand that a diverse workforce is good for business, but they just don't have enough candidates to diversify their ranks. The 40 million underrepresented minority students and professionals in the US are ready to help solve that problem-they just need an entry point and guidance on navigating once they get in the door. Let Them See You is the straight-talking, practical guide for entry- to mid-level professionals who know they have what it takes to succeed in the workplace and contribute meaningfully to the diversification movement. Porter Braswell shows the way, based on his personal experience as one of the few young black professionals working on Wall Street and from his transition to technology entrepreneur and co-founder of Jopwell, the largest career platform for diverse talent. In Let Them See You, Braswell outlines all the lessons he and his colleagues at Jopwell have learned from advising underrepresented minorities on the front lines of the fast-changing workplace, such as how to scale not-so-invisible obstacles, create perceived value, get recognized, be true to oneself, build a personal brand, harness fear of failure, and embrace uncomfortable conversations.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Braswell, CEO and cofounder of Jopwell, a career-advancement platform, brings his experience and expertise as an African American in corporate America to this invaluable guide to surviving the work world for people of color (POC). He starts by arming readers with data to back up the notion that a diverse workforce is good for business, resulting in increased profits and better employee retention. He advises employees to bring that data to the table, arguing alarmingly but not incorrectly that the right thing to do argument will inspire only a token effort at diversity. The majority of the book is a guide for POC to survive and thrive in corporate America: dealing with implicit bias; the positive and negative effects of being in the spotlight; authenticity and personal branding; and ways to lead, no matter your position on the organizational chart. Throughout, Braswell is realistic about barriers and the amount of patience required to succeed. This frank, inspiring book belongs in every library that supports job seekers, and leaders at all levels and of all ethnicities will learn from it.--Susan Maguire Copyright 2019 Booklist"
