Stacey Abrams: Minority Leader
Thursday April 26: 7:30PM – 8:30PM
It’s commonly regarded that networking, persistence, and hard work are the ingredients necessary to advance in the world, but for people like Stacey Abrams it takes more than that to make it. Stacey put in the time, rising from humble beginnings and getting through Yale Law School, spending years in C-suite businesses, before becoming the first woman to lead a political party in the Georgia General Assembly and the first African American to lead in the House of Representatives. She has succeeded in a world that, until recently, was largely the territory of white men.
In her book Stacey Abrams combines memoir and real-world advice for all women and people of coloring who are trying to advance, offering hard-won insight. Join us as she shares her life and instructs how to gain thoughtful self-advocacy and determine one’s genuine passions.
Stacey Abrams is a politician, lawyer, and the House Minority Leader for the Georgia General Assembly and State Representative for the 89th House District. Abrams is also a candidate in the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial election.
