A career low point
While I was working at a large company leading initiatives, my boss was male and his boss was male. I loved my job and kept doing exceedingly well. Every time I would launch an initiative successfully, my boss would get promoted, his boss would get promoted and they would give me an award. I spoke to both of them about me actually getting promoted and they made empty promises. That was hard! Over time I got a mentor/sponsor who told me to keep doing what I’m doing. Keep knocking it out the park. Keep producing amazing work. She then offered me a promotion on her team and I was ecstatic.
