Rally others to your cause: former trial lawyer, Baptist minister (and United Way CEO) explains how

Angela Williams, the first black female CEO of one of the largest privately-funded global non-profits, discusses the experiences that helped her learn how to be a better advocate for others. These experiences range from a father who served in the NAACP tackling civil rights in 1960s South Carolina, to her own life journey serving as a trial lawyer, a Baptist minister and in the military during Operation Desert Storm. She’ll explain what she’s learned about partnering and rallying others for a cause - and what every leader must know about engaging others and getting your point across. Scroll for transcript.
