Publisher's Summary

The Memo is the much-needed career advice guide for women of color specifically, finally ending the one-size-fits-all approach of business books that lump together women across races and overlook the unique barriers to success for women of color. 

In a charismatic and relatable voice, Minda Harts brings her entrepreneurial experience as CEO of The Memo to audio, as well as her past career life as a fundraising consultant to top colleges across the country. With wit and candor, Harts begins by acknowledging the ugly truths that keep women of color from getting the proverbial seat at the table in corporate America: micro-aggressions, systemic racism, white privilege, etc. Harts validates that women aren't making up the discrimination they feel, even if it isn't always overt. From there, she gives straight talk on how to address these issues head-on and provides a roadmap to help women of color and their allies make real change to the system. With chapters on network-building, office politics, money, and negotiation, this overview covers all the basics that any good business book should. But through the author's lens, it offers support and long-overdue advice particularly for women of color.

Amazing - Just what I needed when I needed it!

I don't often write reviews but felt compelled after listening to this book. I devoured it in two commutes. It was so empowering and inspiring to hear a "lean in" story told from my perspective as a woman of color. It was like Minda was reading my experience and speaking it back to me. Her book was funny and oh so relate-able. I absolutely recommend this to all women of color and those that want to be a true ally aka "success partner" (read the book to learn more about this!). This is exactly what I wish I would have known much earlier in my career, but as my headline references, it is never too late to get this memo. This is a must read!

Must read (listen) for EVERY woman

I am a professional woman of color but not necessarily interested in holding a management position at work. I ALMOST passed on this book but at the suggestion of my mentor/sponsor, I downloaded it and listened. I am SO glad I did!!

This book is thought provoking and insightful. I am certain that I am older than Ms Harts by several years but found her book full of wisdom. I appreciated her factual information, real talk and tips.

I am still not interested in being an executive, but I learned how better engage and position myself for a more positive work experience.

PS. She is funny and it the book is very engaging. It is a great read.

Amazing at best!!!

This book is definitely worth a five star rating, if only I could give it 100 stars! Minda’s story will keep you on the edge of your seat, anticipating the next storyline line. I love that she narrated her own story, no one could have done it better. She’s engaging and funny while maintaining a firm stance on equity, diversity and inclusion!!
