“Embracing YOUniqueness: Be Your Own Ambassador”
This presentations purpose is to help black women in corporate America redefine those negative stereotypes placed on us by being our own ambassador. I will tell my story of navigating through the white male dominated finance and accounting industry and overcoming fears, challenges, stereotypes and more by being my own ambassador and staying focused on my vision. Being an ambassador for yourself involves discovering your youniqueness. I will go over common negativeness associated with black women found from research and surveys and examine the positive traits that outweigh the negativity which allows for you to be an ambassador for yourself when no one else will. We will create a vision of what you’re doing today versus future steps that will catapult you to the next ambassador phase in life.
