Happy Black History Month! To celebrate Black History Month, I will try to post a significant person in black history each day for the month of Feburary. I will try to feature lesser known people who are nonetheless a very important figure in black history. The features will be in no particular order, just randomly selected people. I thought about doing it in chronological order, but I like the randomness better :)
Today's feature is Ursula Burns, the CEO of Xerox. According to Wikipedia,
"Ursula M. Burns (born September 20, 1958) serves as chairwoman and CEO of Xerox. She is the first African-American woman CEO to head a Fortune 500 company. She is also the first woman to succeed another woman as head of a Fortune 500 company. In 2009, Forbes rated her the 14th most powerful woman in the world".
Now who said you can't be natural in a professional workplace?!
