Meet Janet Asante, mater mea's New Career Columnist!

Words: Anthonia Akitunde

The human resources expert will offer her wisdom on all things workplace related starting this month. 


Working ladies of color, a quick question: Have you ever wished you had had a resource, a community of women like you who you could reach out to with questions about how to navigate your workplace when it felt at worst, hostile, and at best, dismissive?

We thought so.

Having a mentor or people to talk to as a woman of color is invaluable—and that's why we're so excited to have career and human resources expert Janet Asante share her wisdom with all of us as mater mea's new career columnist. With her 18 years of experience in human resources, Janet's articles will serve as a place for mater mea readers to get answers to their most burning career questions, and create a forum to discuss workplace concerns and goals.


Anthonia Akitunde is the founder of mater mea.
