Publisher's Summary

Advice and inspiration for women of color seeking new heights of influence, from the "incredible" top Latinx advisor to President Obama (Jennifer Palmieri, author of Dear Madam President).

Women of color today are contributing to an unprecedented wave of "firsts"-whether they are the first in a family to attend college, the first to serve as CEO of a Fortune 500 company, or the first in public office, women of color are reaching new heights of influence. 

Cecilia Muñoz was a first, too, and she knows what it means to make her way without exemplars to follow. The first Latinx to lead the White House Domestic Policy Council, Muñoz draws lessons from the challenges she faced as the senior Hispanic person in the Obama White House and as a longtime powerful voice in the Civil Rights Movement. She shares her insights, along with those of some extraordinary women of color she met along the way, as an offering of inspiration to women of color who are no longer willing to be invisible or left behind. 

Full of invaluable lessons about working through fear, facing down detractors, and leading with kindness, Muñoz provides the thoughtful insight and tactical tools women of color need to be successful - without compromising who they are.

Critic Reviews

"It has been my pleasure to work alongside Cecilia Muñoz while I served as the first Latina Secretary of Labor under the Obama administration. Cecilia's experience provides valuable lessons, especially to young people looking to make their way, wondering whether their voices matter." (Hilda Solis, Chair of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and former Secretary of Labor)

"Cecilia is a wise guy who happens to be a woman, a 'domestic' worker whose 'house' work included the White House's public policy, an 'only' and a 'first' too many times in her life as a Latina. She shares with us what her triumphs and mistakes have taught her, stories that clear the way for women following in her brilliant path." (Sandra Cisneros, author of The House on Mango Street)

"It was by watching incredible women like Cecilia Muñoz I learned the important life lesson that if you don't look like everyone else in the room, your perspective matters more, not less. When Cecilia spoke in meetings with President Obama, she did so with a powerful combination of integrity, wisdom, experience and empathy. She was often the only Latina in the room and often had the most insightful observations to make-the one thing that hasn't been said already that the President needed to hear. I have learned much from her and glad others will now have the chance to do so as well." (Jennifer Palmieri, former White House Communications Director and author, Dear Madam President)
