Losing My Privilege: What Becoming a Minority Has Taught Me About Leadership
Speaker(s): Chris Bergeron
Time: 11:00am | Room: Parlor
For nearly 40 years Chris Bergeron led the life of a straight male leader. She enjoyed some success: ran a magazine, worked as a Creative Director, won some awards. The typical life of a white male creative. Then she came out as transgender and began living her life as her true self. This talk will explore how being suddenly thrust into the realities of life as a member of a visible and sexual minority has affected her vision of the workplace and fundamentally transformed her views on leadership.
