EDI Presents Morgan Stanley’s Harris

Ms. Harris

Carla Harris

Part of the Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion’s “Be Inspired” series is to highlight remarkable women who continue to defy the odds, shatter glass ceilings and influence others to maximize their potential. With that aim, EDI will welcome guest speaker Carla Harris, Morgan Stanley vice chair for global wealth management and senior client advisor, to share “Tools for Maximizing Your Success” on Thursday, Sept. 7 at 10 a.m. in Lipsett Amphitheater, Bldg. 10.

A respected thought leader and author, Harris has appeared on television shows, including the Today Show with Kathie Lee & Hoda, with strategies to “win” in the workplace. Recently she was featured on CNBC discussing the importance of diversity in business. Harris is a magna cum laude graduate of Harvard Business School and author of Strategize to Win. She is also a gifted Carnegie Hall gospel singer.

In 2013, President Obama appointed Harris to chair the National Women’s Business Council.

Harris’s presentations provide practical insights on communication, bouncing back after a misstep and building “relationship currency.” Whether you are repositioning yourself in the workplace, new to your career or looking to move up or move on, you may benefit from her talk.
