I’m Helen Wan, author of THE PARTNER TRACK (Macmillan/St. Martin’s Press). I’m an author, speaker, and diversity and inclusion consultant. I’m also a media and intellectual property lawyer. I write about group dynamics and how race, gender, sex, class, culture, family, and privilege impact “success” and personal and professional decisions and outcomes. My work has appeared in The Washington Post, HuffPost, The Daily Beast, on CNN.com, and elsewhere.
THE PARTNER TRACK is an American Dream story. It’s about a woman of color learning to navigate the alien culture at a powerful global law firm. It’s about chasing ambition while attempting to live authentically at work and remaining true to ourselves and our values. I’m thrilled that my novel is coming to Netflix as an original TV series on Friday, August 26!
