Barbara Graves Legacy Award:
When Ursula Burns--the first black woman to become CEO of a Fortune 500 company- took the helm of Xerox in 2010, she burst through a crack in the ceiling made seven years earlier when Ann Fudge was named chairman and CEO of Young and Rubicam Advertising. These women, personal friends and professional allies, have never had a public conversation before but they invite us to pull up a chair and listen closely as they talk candidly about the clearest paths to corporate power for black women, the realities of life at the top, and what they wish they'd known then that is crystal clear now. You won't want to miss a single word.
