Webinar: Certified WBE Business Skills Development
December 18, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
The Other, The Token, The Only One
with Leslie Wingo
Certified WBE Business Skills Development – Online training for certified WBEs.
I am a rarity. I am a black woman who is a CEO of a company.
What is that like? In CEO conferences— no line in the women’s restroom! I get press easily when I attend events: Organizations love to represent that they are diverse—never mind that my Hispanic husband and I were the only people of color in attendance!
I am a pro at code switching (you know- changing who you are so you fit in with the men- talk about sports, golf, etc.). People assuming so much- saying things like “You don’t sound black”, “You are so articulate” and assuming I know everything about all black culture! Being called “honey” and “cute” by male CEO’s!
I am used to it and it is time for a change. It is time to wake up to the lack of diversity in the C-Suite and take definitive action to cause true diversity and inclusion in our organizations.
In this power-packed webinar, Leslie Wingo will cover:
- Learn the advantages of having diversity and inclusion in the workplace
- Determine actions you can take in your organizations today and for the future to promote women and women of color, specifically.
- Discover how innovation and problem solving can expand with diversity and inclusion initiatives.
This training will be available LIVE to all who register. Recording will only be available to our Certified WBE community.
