Members have secured the largest number of Black women to simultaneously serve in Congress, sent the first Black women to the U.S. Senate in two decades, elected more Black women majors in the United State’s 100 most populated cities, and selected the first Black woman to win a major party nomination for a governor’s office!

[BLACK HISTORY MONTH EDITION] NDTC Expert Q&A: Empowering Your Job Search
Thursday, February 16 at 1pm ET
This month’s NDTC Expert Q&A is a part of our Black History Month lineup. In Empowering Your Job Search, three Black Democratic strategists with experience in hiring and campaign staff development will share their own advice and insight.

It’s a known, but unfortunate fact, that job seekers from marginalized communities often underestimate their abilities when applying for jobs or negotiating salaries.

And we want to empower you to combat those biases.

That’s where this NDTC Expert Q&A comes in. Combining our panelists’ expertise in career development and their own lived experiences, they’ll discuss problems and solutions for combating workplace stereotypes, imposter syndrome, and more.

Join three expert panelists moderated by NDTC Associate Director of Staff Academy Jemila Mitchell as they discuss challenges, opportunities, and strategies you can use when pursuing that next big role.
