This important book focuses on how women of color, children of immigrants, and other minoritized groups are predisposed to workplace imposter syndrome—and charts a path forward for self-advocacy and advancement.​

For women of color and children of immigrants, who are the “the other” at work, there's a different threshold of belonging that creates a false feeling of inadequacy. It can lead to being overwhelmed, overworked, and overlooked. The Other shatters the unspoken expectations for you to stay in your lane and gives you the tools to build unshakable confidence and a career that excels–on your own terms.  

Bestselling author and MSNBC reporter Daniela-Pierre Bravo spent many years undocumented and in the shadows as an immigrant from Chile, working odd jobs to pay her way through school. Like many other women of color she became an expert shape shifter in order to chameleon her way around professional environments that felt out of reach. When Daniela became a DACA recipient, she finally felt that she’d made it, rising through the ranks in her career. But she quickly realized that no matter how much success she achieved, she always felt she had to prove her worth as “the other.”

In The Other, Daniela shares her journey and those of other women to help you recognize your power in the workplace outside of the white gaze. She drives you to reshape the way you think about career advancement without losing your sense of identity and helps you see how to use your differences as an advantage. Smart, revealing, and loaded with practical steps, The Other is a framework for how to effectively advocate for yourself, become your biggest believer, claim the spaces in your career that are rightfully yours.

  • "The Other so beautifully encapsulates the challenges and opportunities for those with marginalized identities in the workplace. Danielaprovides a triumphant path forward for success."
    Stefanie K. Johnson, bestselling author of Inclusify
  • The Other is a love letter to every women of color who has sacrificed her authentic voice and talents for a false sense of safety. No longer do we have to be reactive to our work environment. It’s time to rise up and go after what we deserve!”
    Minda Harts, author of The Memo and Right Within
  •  “Equal parts head and heart, The Other not only welcomes women of color to the table, but tells us how to confidently take ownership of that all-important seat. Compelling and full of advice that works, this book should be a staple in workplaces across the nation for women of color.” 
    Bola Sokunbi, author of Clever Girl Finance
  • "The Other expands the view and dialogue on the realities of women of color in the workplace. Daniela Pierre-Bravo takes the experiences of women who feel othered out of the margins and places them squarely in the center to be underscored, understood, and unhidden."
    Tammy Lewis Wilborn, PhD, author of Playing A New Game
  • “If I’d had this book earlier in my career, I probably would have spent less time crying alone in the office bathroom. Essential advice from someone who has navigated these traps and hurdles with agility and grace.”
    Alicia Menendez, author of The Likeability Trap
  • "The Other is an honest account of what it’s like to feel marginalized in a traditional American workplace. Pierre-Bravo’s story of rising the ranks in her career is engaging, useful, and—perhaps best of all—validating. Its underlying message of community and support left me feeling hopeful about the future of work.
