The Changing Face of Leadership :: Black Women!

                      effie's paper - what does leadership look like
I'm curious - what does leadership look like to you?  I ask because it dawned on me the other day that most of my friends are leaders in one form or another ... leaders of legal departments, law firms, non-profit organizations, PR firms, marketing divisions, their own businesses, television producers, tv talking heads and the list goes on ... but, because they're my friends I rarely see them at work in their leadership roles. But, when I do get a chance to see them in their respective elements, I am blown away each and every time.
One of my friends, who's the leader of a prestigious non-profit, just gave a TED Talk titled "Leading While Black". I watched it the other day and all I could say was, WOW.  It's powerful and poignant and tells the story of many of us who have been lucky enough to find ourselves in leadership positions.  As soon as I finished watching it, I knew I wanted to share it with you.  Whether you are currently a leader, aspire to be one or were a leader in a past incarnation, I think there will be something in this talk that resonates with you.
