Things we wish we knew while operating a WOC owned racial & gender equity consulting business

1. Don’t Sweat the “big” name clients.

2. Cut the respectability politics and code switching

3. Honor the work it took to get you there.

4. Do NOT overcompensate.

5. It’s most likely white supremacy — not you!

6. What new business systems are you building? How are you not recreating the systems of oppression that you are trying to dismantle.

7. You are building your OWN table.
