From the outset, this conversation was personal, deeply personal. Terry Morris, director of global services and digital solutions for Eli Lilly and Company and serves as the national president for BDPA (Black Data Professionals Associates) takes us on the journey of being a black leader in tech.
After explaining his comment of “as a black leader, I have been conditioned not be a black leader”, he describes his personal approach to assessing situations and how much of the real Terry Morris he will let people see. We also dive into the recent attack he suffered will riding his bike.
Always positive, Terry provides insight into the BDPA and how all of us (including old white dudes, like me) can get involved, either through a local chapter or by attending the upcoming virtual summit (www.BDPA2020.com). He leaves us with a call to action: a call to lean in!
