Speaker: Candice Bridge, assistant professor of chemistry and president of UCF's Black Faculty Staff Association
In reviewing the struggles that professionals of minority decent have encountered in a predominantly majority profession, one realizes that stereotypical attitudes do cross racial lines. Therefore, we have invited Candice Bridge to come share with us her story on how she and many others broke through the difficulties of climbing the ladder of success from college and unto the present professional roles they occupy.
The glass ceiling is an unofficially acknowledged barrier to advancement in a profession, especially affecting women and members of minorities. Professionals from the minority race and first generation college students have had their share of difficulties climbing the ladder of success in their chosen professional roles. The glass ceilings still exist; however, young professionals of minority decent, especially women, are slowly eroding that glass barrier and reaching their professional goals.
Please save the date as we look forward to hosting every aspiring professional who has big dreams.
