Gisele Marcus

Gisele Marcus Leans In

Syracuse University’s Office of Multicultural Affairs may have saved the best speaker for this year’s Black History Month Program for the last few days. Whitman School of Management and Harvard biz school grad Gisele Marcus was the inaugural speaker for the Sankofa Lecture Series on Friday afternoon.

In addition to giving her bio and educational journey, the Harlem-born Marcus also gave her secrets to the sauce that makes up success. Some of her ingredients include: seeing the world, networking, finding sponsors (as well as mentors), fighting against injustice and getting paid what you are worth.

She also encouraged those in attendance to find their own sankofa moments in life, she added.

Marcus’s presentation, enthusiasm and pearls of wisdom were worthy of a Power Networking breakout session, Google Talk or a City Club of Cleveland forum.

Hopefully the lecture was recorded so every incoming freshman can see it; hopefully she makes it back to campus soon to share more of her story.
