LEADERSHIP TUESDAYS: 

 "Less Talk and More Action"
 

Mellody Hobson, President of Ariel Investments, gave a courageous TED talk in March 2014 about an experience she had in 2006 of being mistaken for the "kitchen help" when she showed up with then Congressman Harold Ford for a lunch meeting at the offices of a highly regarded New York publication. Your first reaction is to chuckle and then you give a heavy sigh and side eye because you know that her experience is not funny at all.

 

Although Mellody has broken the glass ceiling and achieved success, she recognizes that other minorities and women are not being given the same opportunities to excel in their fields and reach the highest echelons of corporate power. With an authentic and courageous voice, she continues to champion diversity even though this is not her main gig. She actually runs an investment firm and sits on the board of a few firms including Starbucks and JP Morgan Chase. 


Ms. Hobson says that, “In everything else we do in corporate America we are held accountable”. So, it’s now time for less talk and more action when it comes to increasing diversity.

"When Given An Opportunity" (Clip)
The MPAA's John Gibson shares a story about Ryan Coogler, the director of the highly successfully film Black Panther, and how they came to meet at the American Black Film Festival. He also talks about Ryan's special visit to Washington, D.C. for a screening of "Fruitvale Station", his first highly acclaimed film. He then stresses the importance of minorities and women like Coogler and Wonder Woman Director Patty Jenkins getting an opportunity to tell their stories.
