I’m Helen Wan, author of THE PARTNER TRACK (Macmillan/St. Martin’s Press).
I’m an author, speaker, lawyer, and diversity, equity and inclusion consultant.
I am fascinated by group dynamics, especially in the workplace. I write and speak most often about how race, gender, sex, socioeconomic status, privilege, culture, history and family impact ambition, our ideas of “success,” and our pursuit of personal and professional happiness.
THE PARTNER TRACK is an American Dream story. It’s about a young woman of color navigating 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 now an original TV series on Netflix!
