Working in corporate America is one thing, but serving as a board member across several corporations is another. Ursula Burns went from CEO of Xerox to sitting on various boards for companies including Boston Scientific, the University of Rochester, the MIT Corporation, American Express, Exxon Mobil, Uber, Waystar, and more. During her tenure at Xerox, Burns was the first Black woman to serve as a CEO of a Fortune 500 Company. For this week’s Black Tech Green Money episode, Burns sits down with Heather Hiles, the Managing Partner at Black Ops Ventures and the founder of  Pathbrite, during AfroTech Executive Brooklyn. The two discuss the new era of Women In The Boardroom and how to navigate your way into those rooms and claim a seat a the table.
