It's often said that women of color have to work twice as hard in their careers to get half as much. But it's not just the actual work. It's working twice as hard to connect with the people around them, because the reality of the worlds of big business and corporations is that people like to invest their energy in employees who remind them of themselves. In What Do You Need?, Lauren explains how she has grappled with the question "Do I belong here?" - a complicated one that women of color repeatedly ask themselves. Through a decade of trial and error, many gutsy risks, and simply putting herself out there, Lauren learned how to take control of her career, accomplish her enormous goals, and carve out a space for herself - one where she clearly belongs.

Told through stories from her own career and those of her friends and connections - including Whoopi Goldberg, Gayle King, Ann Curry, Michelle Lee - as well as through tools, resources, and practical strategies, Lauren uncovers the secrets of how women of color can reach executive leadership positions. Topics include:

  • tackling imposter syndrome
  • building a network
  • establishing your value
  • insights for recognizing the red flags when a job is a dead end
  • and much more
