Editor’s Letter

Editor’s Letter

I'm Asha Atkins and I am excited to share that I will be helping lead The Rosie Report's editorial team, as their first Editor-in-Chief. I started as a contributing writer last fall and my first piece was inspired by the disappointing verdict for the Breonna Taylor case. Writing for Rosie gave me the opportunity to be open, whole, and honest about the experiences that I have as a Black woman working in corporate spaces. That article made me feel validated, heard, and made me want to keep telling more stories. As the Editor-in-Chief I will usher in honest, meaningful and dynamic stories from our community and beyond. Be on the lookout for new content, like a fresh new series on how we're managing mental health at work. The Rosie Report is elevating and I’m grateful to be on this wild ride with her.

We'll hear from Norman Ellis, an event and corporate marketer, on how he works through his mental health, confidence, and other obstacles brought upon by toxic leadership during his job search. Norman will also share how leaders can take on an active interest to understand their teams' roles, and support them.
