I would further advise to seek 1-2 mentors and align with an Advocate for the good work you will do.
I suggest early on to study people and learn tools quickly associated with Human Development & Leadership.
You'll find these tools will serve you towards a faster and more sustainable solution.
And my advise on bias / inclusion etc.... Just be you and follow your goals.
If you perceive these are barriers to your advancement, you have choices to acknowledge and stay behind or acknowledge and move on.
Thank you for a great conversation.

I'm in business for myself but as I think of scaling the business, I will need more resources to connect with and pull in for projects; ultimately closer to full time on a contractor basis.
Please connect with me so we can get to know each other or I'm on Linkedin.
