Can't believe that 5 years ago we took part in one of the most remarkable and amazing shows ever, the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony. Whenever we see or hear anything to do with it, we get goosebumps everytime. Thank you Danny Boyle, you did Britain proud.
Our Woman Motivation Wednesday this week is Ursula Burns. She was the first African American Woman to serve as CEO of a Fortune 500 company. Burns caught the attention of Wayland Hicks, an executive vice president at the time during a company event where she spoke up about the importance of diversity and scolded Hicks for his 'lack of passion and principles' in the topic of diversity. The exchange eventually led to Burns accepting a position as Hicks' executive assistant where her career would take off and she would become the CEO of Xerox. Burns madeForbes' Most Powerful Women list, Black Enterprise's 10 Most Powerful African Americans directing U.S. Corporations list, and ranked on BE’s “75 Most Powerful Women in Business” and the “100 Most Powerful Executives in Corporate America.”Although Burns, has stepped down as CEO of Xerox, she is still an inflential leader in her field and community. • • #glassladdergroup#glg#blackowned#blackownedbusiness#womenowned#womenownedbusiness#womeninbusiness#WOSB#WMW#WomanMotivationWednesday#CEO#entrepreneur#womenempowerment#womenempowermentwednesday
