You Deserve the Career You Desire.

Join me on the journey to Thrive in Color




According to research, 60 percent of your overall career success hinges on your ability to self-advocate. However, as a professional of color, communicating your value and contributions, stepping up for opportunities, and commanding the salary you deserve may feel like your biggest challenge, too.

Author Devika Brij is here to show you that it doesn’t have to be this way. As the CEO of Brij the Gap and consultant to multiple Fortune 50 companies, Devika’s proven tools and strategies have helped thousands of underrepresented professionals create the exact careers, salaries, and work/life balance they desire, despite the institutional and systemic barriers arrayed against them.

Thrive in Color goes beyond motivation to address the specific action steps needed to proactively design and manage your career trajectory and bridge the gap between where you are and where you want to be.

In her literary debut, Brij outlines how self-advocacy can potentially contribute to career success. She also sheds light on why women, people of color, immigrants, and others from underrepresented backgrounds don’t always pursue career growth, and promotions or know how to articulate their value in corporate settings effectively.
