About the Author

Elizabeth Leiba is a writer, college professor, and advocate for Black business women. She has over 100,000 followers on LinkedIn who range in age, race, background, and location, and are primarily located in the US, Canada, and the UK. Her passion for Black history changed her life and catapulted her into a fulfilling line of work as a powerful advocate of social justice and equity for Black women, especially Black business women. Elizabeth strives to create resources which support, empower, and amplify Black business women and their businesses. She was featured in the 2020 New York Times article "Black LinkedIn Is Thriving. Does LinkedIn Have a Problem With That?," which highlighted her social justice advocacy work. The response to this article spurred her to launch her online, accessible e-learning platform, Black History & Culture Academy, the stunning educational resource which earned her the recognition of a LinkedIn TOP VOICE in Education in 2020. She is also the host of Black Power Moves, a podcast on the Ebony Covering Black America Podcast Network (EPN), and is a published writer. Her most recent writing includes an op-ed piece on racial profiling for CNN, which had more than 2 million views on their news website. In early 2022, Elizabeth launched her website directory, Black Women Handle Business, which is the premier website for Black women entrepreneurs and professionals to network, collaborate, and share resources.

Reviews

"Elizabeth Leiba is the voice first-generation Caribbean immigrant professional women have been patiently waiting for!! She has answers for the overachievers who are scared to ask questions because they are expected to have all the answers. Whew, this one hits different! Everyone talks about authenticity, but Elizabeth is showing how using your authentic voice and ditching the code switching can be a path to freedom and achievement. I AM YELLING, LOL-IF YOU NEED A SIGN TO READ THE BOOK, HERE IT IS !"

--Sue-Ann Robinson, Esq., lead counsel for Ben Crump Law in Ft. Lauderdale


"Leiba's work is a strategic tool for Black women navigating corporate America and their allies working to create supportive environments. I'm Not Yelling is the guide you mark with highlights and get out of your purse at work to address difficult conversations. It's the literary sister circle you need to find the strength to get back up on the days you feel unsupported and alone. Personally, I look forward to reading her book and applying the ideas to tackle systems of injustice."--Qaadirah Abdur-Rahim, Chief Equity Officer, City of Atlanta

With fierce, unapologetic vulnerability, Leiba unpacks the complexity and nuance of this sometimes debilitating trope impacting so many Black women. For those committed to challenging stereotypes and enhancing workplace inclusion, this book is a must-read."--Dana Brownlee, Forbes Careers senior contributor
