Uplifting Voices as a Speaker with Minda Harts & Charles Clark

Minda Harts is a bestselling author, speaker, and podcaster who is concerned with uplifting voices and casting a light on the inequalities that women of color face in the workplace. She offers practical advice on topics ranging from improving racial equity and managing diverse talent to leadership and career development. She has spoken at various universities and organizations like Amazon, Google, Twitter, and Nike—just to name a few. Her newest book, You Are More Than Magic: The Black and Brown Girls’ Guide to Finding Your Voice, is available for pre-order now. 

Key Takeaways

  • Many people often yearn for rapid growth and change. However, you should not underestimate the power of consistency, incremental improvement, and small wins. These elements have all played big parts in Minda’s journey and has lead her into her various endeavors today.
  • You don’t have to be a jack of all trades when it comes to speaking; just because you can talk about something, doesn’t mean you have to or should. Instead, hone in on a couple topics and master them.
  • It’s important to invest in the continual improvement of yourself and your skills, regardless of which point in your career you are at. 
  • You have to be ready for unpredictable situations as a speaker. Know when to break script and lean into specific emotions you are feeling.
  • Learn about the importance of uplifting voices of marginalized people.
  • Learn about Minda’s speaking goals for 2022.

  • “The stories that we tell ourselves about ourselves are just as important as the stories that anybody else might tell about us.” – Minda Harts
  • “You have to speak up for yourself before you can speak up on a stage.” – Charles Clark
  • “When you can describe what you do as a process, that’s when you have a business.” – Charles Clark 
  • “I have the power to be the medicine that someone else might need.” – Minda Harts
