S2- Episode 4: How to Increase the Visibility of Your Work for Greater Impact on Communities of Color
Show Notes

As women of color, a lot of us are indoctrinated to not make waves; to blend in. We were led to be unsure of how the work we are doing would be received, so we became comfortable with shrinking our visibility. But, many of us want to have an impact and want to have our ideas and solutions in health justice extend and not feel as if we are doing something outside of the norm or “outside of the box”. We want vocalization and visibility to be the accepted standard for BIWOC in medicine.

Don’t forget, the FREE Stop Waiting & Start Creating workshop, with Dr. Omolara — who has won six-figure funding for two successful social enterprises — is coming up soon! In it she teaches you how your social impact business or practice idea or vision CAN be primed for maximum funding opportunities.  

In this episode of the Melanin & Medicine podcast we discuss visibility and what it would look like if the work you were doing — and the results you were getting for communities of color —  happened in multiple spaces and had a multiplier effect.

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  • How to shift from being a generalist to a specialist in your work
  • How to identify the levers that will identify the solutions you intend supply and present to your community
  • How to create a framework to leverage your community networks in order to present those solutions
  • How to niche and fine tune your specific focus in order to enter your “speciality bubble” 

…and much more!

Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on empowering Black, LatinX, and Indigenous women in medicine to create sustainable health equity initiatives, opportunities, and entrepreneurships that get funded.
