A group of unicorns
is called “a blessing.” And so we are.

A Blessing presents a fresh, bold analysis of African American female leadership. An unapologetic look at our often-overlooked role in America’s social, political, psychological and economic history, it is armed with data that should be empowering for today’s “unicorns.”

The book offers a “playbook” to help Black unicorns “team up” and find innovative ways to support one another as they climb, what research shows, are lonely, stressful, jagged yet ultimately rewarding ladders of opportunity.

Women of Color in Business:
Cross-Generational Survey©
Until now, the impact of Black and women of color in business has been studied intermittently and imperfectly. Co-authors Stewart and Adams conducted their first Women of Color in Business: Cross Generational Survey©, powered by Quadrant Strategies, to drive conclusions in their well received book, “A Blessing.” After the turbulence of 2020, they returned to the field to test their theses and probe new topics. They observe that theirs may be the first study to examine female American “desk workers” by race (Black, LatinX, Asian and white) as well as by generation (Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X and Boomers).

Bonita C. Stewart and Jacqueline Adams bring us an amazing story centered around grit, work and family. They share the economic benefits and personal stresses of diversity, the influence of white male mentors and their own experiences on the way to becoming “unicorns,” African-American Harvard Business School alumnae who have reached the top at Google and CBS News.

 

A Blessing also includes the results of their original, proprietary research, Women of Color in Business: Cross Generational Survey© which examines the views of 4005 female “desk” or “knowledge workers” across four races (Black, LatinX, Asian and White) and four generations (GenZ, Millennials, GenX and Boomers). In addition, they interview other successful Harvard Business School alumnae who are creating or leaving legacies.
