An inspirational approach to tackling racial inequality and redefining success on your own terms
'Powerful and inspiring. A must read' Denise Lewis OBE, Olympic gold medallist
'A book that could simply change your life' Colin Salmon, Actor Michelle Moore is a powerful voice championing a unique brand of unapologetic, yet compassionate activism for positive change in race, gender and social bias found in business, sport, government and education.
In Real Wins she uses her own experience in sport and business, as well as interviews with world-class athletes and leaders, to challenge stereotypes and tired assumptions and shows anyone who feels held back by the colour of their skin, the shape of their body or their social background, how to create their own winning formula and to succeed on their own terms.
A figurehead for Black women in sport and business, Michelle shares lessons learned on the track and in the boardroom to empower and inspire others to draw on the strength of their identity and to find success in every area of their lives. With eye opening examples exploring issues of power, privilege and visibility, Real Wins presents practical strategies for dealing with common challenges that face many marginalised groups.
Both engaging and challenging, this empowering guide explores the different types of activism you can use to align with your personality type and the many different routes you can take to achieve success. Each chapter concludes with practical actions that have been tried and tested in Michelle's work with organisations and individuals.
Packed with timely tools to build self-awareness and resilience, this book will inspire you to run your own race and to take responsibility for your ultimate success.
