I belong to the Executive Leadership Council, a group of African-American Fortune 500 business executives. The authors of this book interviewed 32 of our members about their experiences in the corporate world, from early in their careers to the present. The personal stories show how these executives dealt with race and gender issues, built up their confidence, and learned to use the power they acquired in a positive way. It's such an insightful book because this group has long been at the forefront of successful African-American executives in corporate America.
