Braving untested waters can be disconcerting for those who physically represent diversity. The example of talented, strong leaders such as yourself is invaluable in these cases. You can provide mentorship and act as a sounding board for others, showing them the ropes of success while also broadening perspectives and fostering a sense of belonging.
In this way, you become a true leader – not just for those who identify with your background, but for everyone. By normalizing the presence of minorities in professional leadership, you make it easier for the next generation to find a seat at the table.
