Commanding Respect

We all want to be respected as we go through our lives. But it doesn’t always happen, and respect is often denied from the places and people who mean the most.

Dr. Angelique Adams, Chief Innovation Officer for Aperam, says that there are clear steps for earning the respect you deserve. She should know.

She learned how to gain respect the hard way, beginning in grad school where, as an ambitious woman of color, her professor laughed in her face when she shared her goal of getting a Ph.D.

That experience ignited her quest to study instances of disrespect and strategies for turning the tables. She will share her insights from interviews with over 80 women from different industries while writing her first book, You’re More Than A Diversity Hire.

Come join us to hear her story and to benefit from her advice on strategies and approaches for getting the respect that you so readily deserve.
