Monica Emerson, Founder and Owner of Inclusive Performance Solutions
The first of nine Women of Color in STEM webinar series broadcasted Thursday, featuring founder and owner of Inclusive Performance Solutions Monica Emerson. Ms. Emerson spent almost 30 Years in industry and military before launching her own business. She was executive director of DaimlerChrysler's Global Diversity Office, the most senior position for diversity and inclusion at Chrysler LLC and DaimlerChrysler. After 12 Years in that position, she was appointed the first Navy Diversity Officer for the U.S. Department of the Navy.
Throughout the webinar, CEO of Career Communications Group Tyrone Taborn engaged Ms. Emerson in a dialogue that addressed the noticeable lack of women in technology and discussed why this is a growing problem. The conversation included direct questions from listeners who were trying to make a name for themselves in the technology field, but also faced obstacles which hindered them from the recognition that they deserved. Not only did Emerson share examples of the barriers that underrepresented women faced while climbing the ladder to a successful career in technology, but she provided listeners with important career tips that they should consider from the start of their careers.
The second Women of Color in STEM webinar will premiere Thursday, September 4, 2014 at 11 a.m. EST.
