Black Women Ready to Lead
The National Women’s Leadership Network (WLN) and the Black Employee Network (BEN), in collaboration with the Center for Talent Innovation (CTI), hosted an evening that unpacked strategies and cultural changes that are needed to realize the tremendous leadership of Black Women.
