Product Details


“Black women can’t afford to wait around for broken systems to be fixed. Francine Parham knows what it takes to gain influence and fight for inclusion in an unfair world, and in this book she shares her extensive experience and practical advice on how to overcome intersectional barriers and biases.”
—Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Think Again and host of the TED podcast WorkLife

“Through personal anecdotes and lived experiences as a Black woman, Francine teaches us the importance of power, how to obtain it, harness it, and use it to your advantage—from the receptionist to the CEO and, most importantly, from within yourself. A must-read for women wanting to advance in their career.”
—Lisa Kaplowitz, Executive Director, Rutgers Center for Women in Business

“Parham helps set the table in Please Sit Over There to remind Black women they belong at every table and, most importantly, how to recognize when it’s time to find a new one.”
—Minda Harts, bestselling author of The Memo

“This book is a wonderful coach for any new careerist. At the same time, it is also a coach for those with long careers who want to get savvy about how to manage and continue to grow their careers. A great job by someone who has not only thought long and hard about these issues but has truly lived them and learned!”
—Bev Kaye, EdD, coauthor of Up Is Not the Only Way, Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go, and Love ’Em or Lose ’Em

“A must-read for all. Rarely do I come across books on careers that give a practical and close look at what happens behind the scenes. Power as a topic is so important and so difficult to capture from a nuance perspective. Francine has done a great job of sharing her experience and teasing out the nuance.”
—Pavan Bhatia, founder of the social impact venture GenWe and former Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, PepsiCo

“Packed with wisdom, insights, and practical advice, this book is a powerful and essential read for every Black woman—and all women of color—on how to navigate their corporate careers and achieve success in the workplace.”
—Aparna Ramaswamy, angel investor and Board Member, American India Foundation
