Other Editions of This Title:
First and Only is a guide for every woman who has found herself closing the cover on other leadership books that omit our true experiences and strengths. In this book, Jennifer R. Farmer helps listeners learn what is required for the long haul of liberation by providing a roadmap to on-the-job success, challenging systemic racism, and seeking inner healing through the power of faith. She offers practical strategies for Black women to thrive in workplaces that can be ambivalent about their success, as well as tips and stories from psychologists, activists, and organizational experts that equip Black women to lead others and heal past wounds.
The path for success for Black women includes a commitment to self-care, spiritual growth, and a willingness to push for progress. First and Only is not just about how to lean in, or how to discover the irrefutable laws of leadership. It's about how to heal so you can sustain work for justice and equity. It's about finding personal and social redemption—and leading others to find it too.
