One of the most significant challenges I have encountered is being "the only" in certain professional settings. While some may see this as empowering to represent diversity, there have been moments of isolation and the pressure to constantly prove myself. One of the most important antidotes for those who are feeling like “the only” is to hire more diverse leadership. What this means to these groups is to see a version of themselves reflected at higher levels of the company. This can alter a perception of a work culture and even transform careers. Deborah Jones, technical officer
Navigating a male-dominated field as a visible minority had always felt like an individual battle for me, the challenges I face were not something we talked about or shared. My path has been marked by challenges and hurdles that I had to overcome on my own. The formation of the Women’s Forum provided us with a uniform voice, a networking and support platform. It’s great to hear from other women talk about how they were able to overcome challenges, share my own experience to uplift women in their career development path, and develop a strong voice to make notable changes company wide to address unconscious bias towards the underrepresented. Weina Chong, director, business development, NextGen
