(Urbandisc.com) - Corporate America holds more opportunities for minority executives than ever before. And yet, many companies whose stated missions include workforce diversity have proven less than ideal for people of color.
As these institutions struggle to apply what is preached to what is practiced, it is incumbent upon black professionals to assert their skills and place themselves in a position to succeed.
Cracking The Corporate Code presents the stories of 32 executives whose stories define African-American business success. Thriving in spite of multiple obstacles, they have enjoyed extraordinary careers at( and helped build the fortunes of )organiztions including Sears Roebuck, General Mills,Coors Brewing Company,Coca-Cola, Revlon, Citibank, AON, Corning, Paine Webber,and many more.
In remarkably candid interviews, these exemplary professionals reveal not only the secrets of their sucesses, but the sources of their fears, their most difficult challenges, and their hopes for the future.
Their experiences are presented according to what they reveal about the black experience in the white-centric workplace, from uncertainty to confidence, from struggle to strength, and from enjoying success to giving back in the name of those whose fortunes have yet to turn.
