Black women are far less likely to get help navigating organizational politics and balancing work and personal lives, and managers are less likely to promote their accomplishments. The same dynamic holds true for access to managers: only about a third of Black women socialize with their manager outside of work, compared to about half of white women. Women of color are much more interested in becoming a top executive than white women are. Black women with leadership ambitions are particularly interested in paving the way for others and having a positive impact on company culture.
