About the Author

Alan Henry is a journalist and editor who writes and commissions stories that help readers make better use of their technology and embrace a healthier relationship with it in their lives.

"Workplaces still have a long way to go to give marginalized groups the opportunities they deserve. Alan Henry doesn't just illuminate the invisible barriers that often stand in the way of success--he shines a light on what you can do to break through them. His book is filled with honest observations and actionable advice."--Adam Grant, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Think Again and host of the TED podcast WorkLife

"Seen, Heard, and Paid is the perfect antidote to workplace gaslighting. With compassion and keen insight, Alan Henry has created a productivity manifesto for workers who are marginalized in the office, whether for race, gender, sexual orientation, or educational background. If you've ever cried over coworker microaggressions or gotten angry at a boss who never gives you credit for your ideas, this book will light the way forward to better relationships with colleagues--and teach you when to draw the line and say no."--Annalee Newitz, author of Four Lost Cities: A Secret History of the Urban Age and cohost of Our Opinions Are Correct

"Alan Henry's 'new work rules' are vital in our post-COVID world as workers reconsider and reclaim their power. For disabled people like me who've been consciously and unconsciously shut out of office opportunities and culture, this thorough and thoughtful guide will not only help you feel less alone but will give you tools to define your own success. An essential read for anyone trying to make sense of their place at work and in the world."--Tessa Miller, author of What Doesn't Kill You: A Life with Chronic Illness

"For those of us from marginalized identities, most books on office politics offer advice that not only doesn't work but actually makes us more vulnerable. Seen, Heard, and Paid is the workplace advice book for the rest of us. It's grounded in the reality--backed by data--that for some of us office politics is actively stacked against us. And it helps us navigate those spaces while maintaining our dignity--and our sanity."--Kendra Pierre-Louis, journalist and author of Green Washed
