Ursula Burns made history at Xerox Corporation in 2009 when she became the first African American female CEO and Chairman of a Fortune 500 company.
In acknowledgement of Black History Month, tune in to hear details of Ursula’s self described impossible, yet predictable, success.
Ursula grew up in poverty in a dangerous housing project in New York City. She and her two siblings were raised, in a single parent household. Their Mom worked low paying jobs, but still managed to send all three kids to private school, and instilled in dreams for a better life.
In excerpts from recorded interviews, Ursula describes her journey from “the hood” to becoming a titan of industry.
