Courageous Conversations: Black in the C-Suite

Helene GayleA sea of change around equity in the corporate landscape is on the horizon. The media is filled with announcements - and actions - from global and local companies about their strategic investments in diversity, inclusion and equality. Because of the critical roles that Black women in leadership play in today’s shifting environment, Spelman College is continuing its virtual series, “Courageous Conversations: Black in the C-Suite.”

These events will feature in-depth conversations with Spelman President Helene Gayle, M.D., MPH., and distinguished guests to have candid discussions about their corporate and personal journeys, working through crisis and the opportunities for Black women leaders as equity becomes more valuable across professions.

The goal of Courageous Conversations is to inform and inspire.

Spelman Students, Faculty and Staff, Join us for the return of "Courageous Conversations: Black in the C-Suite," on Monday, Nov. 28, at 2 p.m. ET in Camille Olivia Hanks Cosby, Ed.D, Academic Center Auditorium. President Helene Gayle will be joined by film writer, director and Morehouse College alum Spike Lee, ’79, and television and film producer, Tonya Lewis Lee, for a candid conversation about the impact of the HCBU experience on the Lee family, their career journeys and perspectives on achieving social and economic mobility.   This event will be in-person and live streamed via Zoom, for guests outside of Spelman’s campus who wish to attend. Please remember that masks are required for attendance at indoor events.

Courageous Conversations began on Sept. 11, 2020. The inaugural session featured Robin Washington, formerly the executive vice president and chief financial officer of Gilead Sciences, Inc. in conversation with Mary Schmidt Campbell, Ph.D. as the speaker. Listen, learn and be inspired by past Courageous Conversation recordings.

We have concluded our 2021-22 series. Please enjoy the recordings of these dynamic conversations as we plan for the upcoming year.
