Are you able to be your most authentic self in your workplace?

Our guest in this episode, Lindsey Ingram, is sharing her experience as a woman of color in corporate America and how she learned to speak up and be listened to. She’s also sharing how she left a career that she was no longer aligned with and went on to double her salary and find more happiness.

You shouldn’t have to change who you are in order to fit in or be accepted in your workplace, so how can you advocate for yourself as a WOC in corporate America? Lindsey has lived it and now she’s sharing what she learned with you.

Lindsey is a former collegiate track and field athlete who is now tackling the world of health insurance as a market director for a vision care company, keeping her values at the forefront.

What We Cover in This Episode:

  • Why you shouldn’t have to change for a company 
  • The power of being true to yourself
  • How to find a company that values you 
  • Value-based questions to ask a potential employer
  • Learning from people who can bring you different perspectives 
  • Asking for what you want and need
  • How to go after the life you want
  • Speaking up in your workplace

I’m so excited to have Lindsey on the podcast to share her experiences with us. If you relate to Lindsey as you listen to her story and realize that you’re not living your most authentic life, grab a pen and take note of what she did to change her situation. You can do it too.
