Black and Corporate: Fenorris Pearson Explains How to Find a Mentor in your Company

by Fenorris Pearson, CEO – Global Consumer Innovation, Inc. 

Even when I was a Vice President at Dell Computers, one of the most cutting edge companies on the planet, our problems remained the same. The variables changed, but the bottom line always came down to figuring out how to sell to one customer at a time. Reaching this critical objective becomes more complex as technology changes and the world becomes more advanced. As complacent as we’ve gotten with new technology and global opportunities, this much has become clear: what got you here won’t get you there. In fact, what positioned you here, might not even keep you here…

…At least, not without a sponsor.

These days competition isn’t just stiff, it’s rigid. You need every advantage you’ve got, particularly if you’re a recent grad, female or minority. Think hard work, an MBA and a well-rounded resume will get you to the top? Think again; that might be what got you here, but to get there – the proverbial corner office or CEO’s chair – you’ll need more than just a spotless resume and a 4.0 GPA; you’ll need a sponsor.

I never leave a comment, but I have to know why do we continue to recognize "Tiger Woods" and his achievements? He does not, on any occassion, affiliate or proclaim publicly any african-american or black interaction. So why do we even care what he does or what he makes? He obviously does not care what we think? Why don't we just finally admit to ourselves that "Tiger" does not want us! Why won't we just let him go, and let him be, whatever "else" it is he want's to be, because it ain't black. Let him go black people, let him go.
