Listen to “Climbing the Corporate Ladder” from Yes Ma’am


On April 25th 2015, we held Yes Ma’am, a one day women’s career symposium focused on entrepreneurship, corporate success and trailblazing. Moderator Chris Denson of Innovation Crush led the conversations of the 3 panels, including “Climbing the Corporate Ladder” with Talitha Watkins (VP of Multicultural Marketing for Universal Pictures), Alero Akuya (Nike Women Brand Marketing Director) & Courtni Asbury (Senior Director of Media & Artist Relations at Def Jam Recordings). These ladies not only worked their way up the corporate ladder but redefined how to do it. They worked hard, trusted their guts and adjusted as necessary to get attain the careers they deserved. During the panel, they discuss the importance of personal branding, maintaining relationships, goal setting, work-life balance and more.
