Listen to LET THEM SEE YOU Author Porter Braswell‘s “Race at Work” Podcast
Porter Braswell, author of LET THEM SEE YOU: The Guide for Leveraging Your Diversity at Work (Lorena Jones Books/Ten Speed Press), has pivoted into podcasting. Mr. Braswell shares: “Toward the end of 2020, amidst the horrific acts of racial injustice, I decided to launch a podcast with Harvard Business Review called Race at Work – a show that explores the role race plays in our careers and lives. It was my small way of trying to help build bridges as I was tired of people speaking past one another. So far, the show has received incredible responses from listeners, noting appreciation for validating the experiences of professionals of color and for covering topics that the majority population is curious about, but may not feel comfortable raising.”
