THE FIRST FORTUNE 500 BLACK WOMAN CEO w/ URSULA BURNS | Flashback
Ursula Burns was CEO of Xerox from 2009 to 2016, the first among black women to be a CEO of a Fortune 500 company, and the first woman to succeed another as head of a Fortune 500 company.
Most pertinent to todays conversation is her board roles. Ms. Burns sat on the Boards of Directors for more than 15 companies, including Boston Scientific, the University of Rochester, the MIT Corporation, American Express, Exxon Mobile, Uber, Waystar and more.
During this conversation, which was held at AfroTech Executive Brooklyn, Ms. Burns talks with Heather Hiles, managing partner at Black Ops Ventures, and founder at Pathbrite about how corporate boards work, how to get one one, and determining if its the right fit for you in the first place.
