Phylicia Rashad, Ursula Burns And Bernard Tyson To Speak At The 2017 Black Enterprise Women of Power Summit

NEW YORK, -- Black Enterprise hosts its 12th

annual Black Enterprise Women of Power Summit

on Thursday, March 9th to Sunday, March 12th at the

Arizona Grand Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona.

The Summit, hosted by ADP, is the leading executive

development conference for women and annually

welcomes more than 1,000 mid- to senior-level power

players and C-suite executives from across the country.

This year’s conference highlights include:

The Women of Power Legacy Awards dinner

honoring those who blazed trails and redefined the

standard of success for women of color. This year’s

recipients are Ursula Burns, Chairman of Xerox Corp.;

Phylicia Rashad, Tony Award-winning actress, singer, and

stage director; Pastor Shirley Caesar, Grammy Awardwinning

singer; and gender and race activist Marcia Ann

Gillespie.

Ursula Burns, the first black woman to become

CEO of a Fortune 500 company, and Ann Fudge, former

chairman and CEO of Young & Rubicam Advertising, will

talk candidly about the clearest paths to corporate power

for black women, the realities of life at the top, and what

they wish they’d known then that is crystal clear now.
