Corporate America

“I have to catch my breath because when I started in my career, I spent so much time as the only Black woman. I would be the one who was leading the meeting or the presentation and then someone would come up to me and say, ‘Can you make copies?’ or ‘Can you get water?’ And I’m like, ‘No. I’m actually leading this meeting.’ I didn’t understand the power of being a Black woman performing in these settings. Now it’s about, ‘How do I provide a pathway? How can I be a gateway?’ ” Kendra Bracken- Ferguson
