Reflections on Inclusion, Diversity and Self-Publishing
Show Notes

Have you ever thought about writing a book about the work you do? Or, how about self publishing a book you've been wanting to write? Sarah Cordivano did both! Sarah works as a Head of strategy and governance in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Berlin. She’s originally from Philadelphia and moved to Berlin 6 years ago. Sarah’s background is in data analytics and project management and she has just written a book: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: How to Succeed at an Impossible Job. The book is aimed towards anyone who is starting a job in DEI and wants to know how to get started, how to set a strategy and how to maintain a healthy relationship with the job. It’s very practical and hands-on. Sarah joins us to discuss her book AND her journey in writing it! Listen to Sarah for ideas on how you can write and self publish  a book, too! 

Takeaways:

1. Actively try to work towards maintaining a healthy relationship with the work you do, and specifically think about good work-life balance -- making sure your time outside of work is as fulfilling as your time spent at work.

2. When you are working towards a significant milestone accomplishment, there’s an important balance between being grateful and appreciative of all the people in your life who have supported you and inspired you, and also being proud of the effort you put into your achievement to make it a success

3. If you are curious about self-publishing, explore how-to videos on YouTube. Self-publishing can be as easy as writing your book in a word document and uploading it to Amazon KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing).
