Nearly 60 Scholars and alumni attended a career development event with Carol Fulp, the president and CEO of The Partnership, Inc., an organization dedicated to leadership development and talent management solutions for professionals of color. Carol led a conversation centered on bringing diversity to the workplace, the importance of mentorship, and how to find the right professional opportunities.

“As our Scholars consider career advancement in Boston, they would be hard pressed to find a better source of advice than Carol Fulp,” says Posse Boston Director Andy Gallagher. “It was an honor to have her here. I was very excited to see so many Scholars and alumni take the opportunity to join in this conversation.”

At The Partnership, Carol focuses on creating new opportunities for women and multicultural professionals to rise to positions of influence. Her previous experience includes serving as the senior vice president of corporate responsibility and brand initiatives at John Hancock Financial, the director of community programming and human resources at WCVB-TV, and the corporate employee relations manager for the Gillette Company. In 2010, she was appointed by President Obama to be the U.S. representative to the 65th session of the General Assembly of the United Nations.

“Posse students are clearly our future,” says Carol. “I enjoyed meeting our next generation of bright, diverse and talented young leaders.”

Carol’s encouraging and authentic viewpoint about navigating a career course, learning from failure, and leveraging success to help others inspired Scholars and alumni.

“My goal is to create a better campus, just as other Scholars have done for me,” says Bucknell University Scholar Danielle Taylor. “Ms. Fulp’s words gave me motivation to continuing doing so.”
