To my understanding, in spite of can be followed by a noun or gerund.
So, it is correct to say: ispite of my hard work. this is followed by noun.
is it correct to say in spite of my working hard. followed by gerund. If this is correct as well, would the pronoun MY be awkward in the sentence?

Your examples are fine, but "in spite" is two words.
